I found one at service Honda for $265 and Rocky Mt. price matched it but it was still a costly valve check and getting the valve cover off is a pain in the ass. Just under 20K and the valves and right in the middle of the range. Got the new pump today and put it back together. No more worrying about that 2008 fuel pump crapping out on me.
I'l wait until 26k then. I may just pop the engine out.
So the outlet is part of the pump? Too bad you couldn't salvage the pump from the assembly.

Cabin Fever Road Enduro '14

Anyone have a date for the Road Enduro run by the Woods Riders in the Zanesville area?? It's usually mid April or so. Don't see anything listed anywhere. Thanks.

They might not be having it this year. They said it wasn't profitable.

If this is the group you are talking about http://www.zanesvilletrailriders.com/events.html

Looks like August 3rd. They have a gravel road ride before the dual sport. I did the dual sport last year, it rained the entire week before hand so it was a soupy mess. Pretty hard to do the hill climbs actually. But if it were dry out I'm sure it would be a hell of a lot more fun. The road ride went down and around the wilds area, I think, I didn't go but talked to someone that did. There is a number for a guy named Terry on that link that organized the road ride last year, give him a call if you need more info.

On second look, I don't think that is the one that you are talking about, my bad.

Rear sprocket looks really big compared to stock, so my guess is yes. Only a diesel would have torque. But the it could be just angle of the photo.

I am the head of Ohio Woods Riders, and we are the group that usually does the Cabin Fever Road Enduro. We're not doing one this spring for a few reasons....One of which is the fact that we have a "real" enduro and dual sport on May 4th, so we are busting butt on that at the moment. Second, our Road Captain is in Florida until some time in April. Third, the weather has REALLY sucked this year, and we are behind on the trail layout.
We love the Road Enduro, but are struggling with the lack of turnout. We BARELY break even after paying for insurance, trophies, and food. We've had an almost identical turnout of 56 riders for the last 3 or 4 years.. If we drop below 53 people, we lose money.
I've heard a lot of people say that "I ain't paying money to ride roads that I can ride for free". I guess playing the road enduro game, and getting a meal all for under $30 isn't a good enough deal for some people.

If we can get a commitment from at least 50 people, I'll look at scheduling one for the fall...

Hi Motodirtlover,

My husband and I did our first road enduro with you guys last year and we had a great time. If you do another one, and it fits into our schedule, then we will be there.

So that's two. You just need 48 more...

If you are here, you are already dammed. There is no escape.

So I called up the Captain,
"Please bring me my wine"
He said, "We haven't had that spirit here since nineteen sixty nine"
And still those voices are calling from far away,
Wake you up in the middle of the night
Just to hear them say...
