    Hi
    I am currently looking at both of these pumps and an in line regulator. The flooding also explains a possible oil leak on the engine. The over flow pipes for the carbs lie between the cylinders petrol is running down on the engine looking like an oil leak from the base of the cylinder.Busy re-routing pipes.
    Thanks for advice

    Your Oil Leak from the Middle of the V.... could be a leaking Oil Pressure Sensor as mine did around the plastic that houses the Wire Connector.

    Also, I have been using The Facet # 40171 for thousands of miles with No Problems on an '06 Adv.

    When I called the Facet engineer, he stated that the psi will Drop is .5 - 1 psi from the lift travel upward to the Carbs.

    The Two vent hoses from the carbs are vented between the Cylinders to shield them from Wind, as the Carbs are Very Very Sensitive.

    My 2006 950sm is great... handles amazing and rips pretty decent. I'm coming from a "not ready to race" bike (DR650) -- but after reading so many people refer to this KTM as a "wheelie monster" or "wheelie machine" I'm wondering if there's something wrong with mine. because the front wheel certainly doesn't beg to lift. I know most sport bikes I've been on lift pretty easy, even the Suzuki SV1000 popped that front wheel up accidentally a few times. But this supposed supermotard Hooligan bike is very tame and civilized. Not saying it's a bad thing, just wondering. Is that because I need to mod the airbox? Is that because I need to gear it differently? For sure it can be wheelied, but am I missing something because mine is super planted and not at all prone to wheelies. It can do like a power bunny hop pretty easy off a speed bump, but nope, not a "wheelie machine".

    What gearing are you running? On both my SM and ADV, I dropped one tooth on the CS sprocket. It improved drivability a lot.
