This was the Hafren Rally, Pyn was awesome as ever.
Yours truly at least got to the finish on my 690, hating the dust...

This weekend is the 2 day Cambrian Rally which includes the infamous Strata Florida

I guess what I really meant to ask was have you tried the CJRacer hardened water pump kit. From your reply that is a no I guess! Thanks though!

Taking a Break.....

After a full season of racing in the UK Rally Championship, my machine is taking a break on a 'Show Tour'!

First Stop - International Dirt Bike Show, Stoneleigh Park, UK
Second Stop - Motorcycle Live 2011, Britain's Largest Motorcycle Show.

Wish the shows were over

I have to say, I think it was the only bike at the International Dirt Bike Show that had actually done anything

I don't like them tugging on the fork shields, this is the main reason and remember my set-up is unique to my bike in that I have a solid cross tube on the lower triple clap rather than a T-piece like the 990.

No bother whatsoever granted not done as many miles off road/competing as Pyn, but done a fair bit. No problems and still working a treat

Pyndon - Thank you!!!

Hi Pyndon,

Thank you for taking the time to document how to change the water pump seal. I used it tonight and your step by step was fantastic.

Thanks again,

Jeff

Especially the part about waiting until the wife was out to bake the case, but I would suggest wiping it down first with castrol to give your house that old time GP aroma. Thank you Pyndon.

I like the rocks. It's like at the zoo. Where the zoo tries to make a "natural" habitat by placing some fiberglass trees around so the elephants think they are in the Africa.

Oh man, I would love to take that 90,000mile beast to Dakar. I know it would get me through no worries!
