  1. Thanks and sorry for my laziness. I have been following these posts but apparently not closely enough.
  2. Anyone have P/Ns and good place to order from? Thanks.

    why doesnt the bottom of my air filter seal???

    OK, so the plastic "high spot" I pointed out is supposed to fit into the boot area. Perhaps he had that not seated. Mine is not like this so it's hard to know without looking at it. Your idea of the filter being sacked out so it sits too low makes sense.

    Looks to me like the cage has a high spot or is installed incorrectly or the filter is not installed correctly (cage and/or filter rotated?): If you look at this photo, you can see where it looks high:

    Husqvarna 701 Engine Cut-out

    OK, I solved the problem. Attached to the backside of the kickstand is a small adjustable plastic "arm" (about 1" long and curved and has a small hidden magnet in it) held on by a single small bolt. You can pivot this arm to change its alignment with the magnetic sensor attached to the frame. After adjustment, my bike now shifts into gear and does not stop the engine. It will also start in gear with the kickstand up and the clutch pulled in. I think this arm got tweaked when I put the bike on a small lift stand.

    Husqvarna 701 Engine Cut-out

    I am now also having this problem - bike shuts off immediately when shifted into gear. I inspected the kickstand and pickup and it is a magnet setup. Strangely, the magnet seems to get nowhere close to the pickup when the stand is up but everything looks as if it's in place and nothing broken. The bike has only 650 miles and it worked last time I was fooling with it in the garage. I tried putting a magnet near the pickup just to troubleshoot and it made no difference (but I may not have been precise enough). Yes, I could hotwire it but that is not my first choice. Does anyone know where under the seat the sensor wires come up and their color. I'd like to see if I accidentally dislodged a wire when I was working on the bike. If you have any other ideas, I am interested in those too. Thanks.

    I am not sure what is going on with amazon (probably a 3rd party seller). That is the right Purolator P/N since I have 5 in hand. I did order some from both another online vendor and amazon and both times I got the right thing. Obviously buyer beware here. Of course the wrong things can be returned to Amazon but that's a PITA for an $8 product.

    I as well as others have had a lot of discussion about the (non-)quality of the KTM fuel parts (pumps, filters, etc.). Here is a potentially good thrid-party option for the pump and filter. They claim their pump is as good or better than OEM. Please note that they are selling the same OEM piss-poor plastic filter that is guranteed to let you down. I recommend you you use the metal replacement previously discussed in this thread. They also sell the hoses, etc. Good luck and happy and safe riding. https://www.highflowfuel.com/i-23899026-quantum-t35-intank-fuel-pump-w-regulator-and-strainer-for-husqvarna-fe-501-2014-2018-replaces-78107088000.html

    It's the magura clutch slave cylinder issue on the Huskys. It's a huge problem and most owners get bit by it (in my case 25 miles from anywhere with though rocky climbs and no clutch disengage). Nasty. Here's the link: If you have one of the affected bikes, I highly recommend you buy the Oberon replacement. Alternatively you can get the brembo kit (I have not tried that route).

    Any design that knowingly puts debris into an environment where the debris is catastrophic (fuel injector) is a terrible design. And to put a filter downstream of such debris injection that is also unable to handle the pressure of said poor design just adds to the insult. In short, two terrible choices in one design. What could possibly go wrong? Oh yeah, stranded machines in the middle of nowhere. I personally ride my bike up to 50 miles from the nearest anything. When it quits (and it has three times now due to this and the shitty clutch slave cylinder), IT'S A BIG DEAL. If you ride your bike a mile from the truck, then who cares. Where I ride, it's possible for it to be a life-challenging issue. Would I gladly pay a few dollars extra for a brushless pump design? How about for a better slave cylinder? I already have ($90) for the Oberon. Do not get me started on the poor quality and longevity rear wheel bearings - another endemic problem on these bikes. Just how many spare parts do we have to carry to not risk getting stranded? I stand by what I said - the pump is in fact barfing itself out. Enough to clog filters. How many other vehicles clog the fuel filter due to putting a cheap pump in front of the filter. Near zero, I reckon. It would be one thing if the manufacturer didn't know about this when they built the bikes. It's another to have this go on for many years with knowledge of it and sit idly by doing nothing. Sort of like the 690 ghost-shifting problems - yet another travesty foisted on us owners with prior knowledge.

    Not true. DC motors do not have to have brushes or any contact/wear parts except the bearings. All drone copters use brushless motors. Brushes are old-school and generally used because they are cheaper (to build but not operate). My guess is this pump motor is a 20+ year old design and KTM sees no reason to fix it because they don't have to deal with the consequences (we customers do plus it sells more parts). For more on brushless motors see: https://www.quantumdev.com/brushless-motors-vs-brush-motors-whats-the-difference/ and https://www.google.com/search?q=brushless+dc+motors&oq=brushless+dc+motors&aqs=chrome..69i57j69i65l3j0l2.11525j1j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

    Yep, this is what all mine look like - clearly a poor pump design if it's barfing out that much of itself. I would replace that plastic filter with a metal one...

    What about my theory that it's from the carbon evap canister? I am no expert here on these systems and that would not explain the black stuff on a bike that does not have one..

    Every filter I have ever replaced has been filled with a black substance. From what I and everyone I have talked to thinks that it's the pump itself breaking down (i.e., not something from outside the tank). My guess is the pump uses cheap carbon brushes and they slowly wear and cause the black junk. I have never seen a plugged filter (but many failed ones where the "split" at the seam where they are glued/welded together (see my previous posts)). To get a filter to plug from external debris would be quite a challenge, IMHO unless you used some dirty gas can, etc. I seriously doubt it's dirt from the vent line and I think the newer bikes vent to a carbon canister anyway (maybe that's where the black crap is coming from), assuming they have not been "de-smogged" by their owners.

    OK, I got the p/n for my '17 FE501 and then looked it up and found a complete list of bikes that kit covers (including yours): https://www.bikebandit.com/oem-parts/detail/ktm/81207090100/b4163382. So, yes, they should be interchanagle. Here's the P/N for the kit (found here: https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/oem-parts ) 81207090100. If you search for this p/n, you will get a lot of options (the $66 kit includes the pre-filter (which you don't need) and the clamps (which you do need but are very cheap to buy separately at amazon). I see the OEM filter (not what you want since it's cheap plastic) alone for $8 on amazon: https://www.amazon.com/2016-Genuine-KTM-Filter-81207090100/dp/B01N4MS95A), https://www.amazon.com/MAHLE-Original-KL-97-Filter/dp/B0068O6L7I/ref=pd_lpo_vtph_263_tr_t_2?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=GGEH5JC8DN4H76CE7V9R Here's the link to the Purolator metal filter: https://www.google.com/search?q=Purolator+F29160&oq=Purolator+F29160&aqs=chrome..69i57j35i39j69i59l3.1055j0j4&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8 Here's a link to the equivelent filetsr (no gurantees all of these would be exact fits): http://www.fuelfilter-crossreference.com/convert/PUROLATOR/F29160
