Beautiful machining, top job and good to deal with.

I bought a spare fuel pump from Felco on a certain big online auction site...cost was about $40

Direct replacement for the original pump. Just gonna keep it as a standby. I got free shipping over here but to ship to my place over in Australia would only have been $15

If any1 is interested and can't find it pm for a link.

Air Sensor for the ECU and you must install it with the pipe facing downwards.

The bolts you put through for your tank bolts should be High Tensile, what you have done is similar to the Rally Raid set up and they are high tensile alley key head bolts.

Big wills,

Looking at preventative measures for my latest shutdown as I am unlikely to isolate the fault.

Looking at running "Engine Ice" coolant as it looks to run the engine slightly cooler. Had considered "Liquid Intelligence" but it looks like it will just prevent boiling as it raises the boiling temp but won't necessarily run the bike cooler. Might put a switch in the fan circuit like Kato has done so I can select it on in the hard stuff.

Also looking at trying to insulate the fuel lines and remove any possible tight bends, might try and aluminium wrap to reflect any heat. I heard on the Dakar a senior Honda guy recommended larger diameter fuel pipes but I don't know if I could make that work with all the end fittings required to be standard size.

Also getting the injector cleaned and pattern checked properly.

What do you reckon.

Andy

Hey El Plonker.
From what I remember, Engine Ice is a polypropylene glycol as opposed to the run of the mill ethylene glycol. I personally wouldn't bother.
What you could try is the 66/33 ratio of water to ethylene glycol, water being the best transferer of heat there is, after all we're not in Austria and we don't need an antifreeze.

The fan switch is a really good idea especially with this heat coming on.

As for the fuel pumps, I reckon they're probably all from the same factory in China whether they be the new ones or the older ones.
Most of what I've read and experienced points to the fuel pump being the problem or sometimes a clean of the injector.
Have you tried putting a pressure tester in the line somewhere? They are cheap to buy off Ebay from what I've seen.

Good luck with the fiddling. Seems to be part and parcel of owning European machinery

Just had a good look around and realised when I last changed my external filter I had left it pulled out and hence was sitting about 10mm away from my exhaust, I have tucked it back in and out of the way and will see how that goes, as the canam filter is metal it may well have been enough to cause a vapour lock. I can reroute it to the other side of the bike or back up where the quick disconnect was but I will see how it goes as it is easily accessible at the moment and great for accessing to check fuel line pressure. May look at getting a fuel pressure sender but will see how the quick fix goes first.
Thanks for help big dick.
Andy

Got my injector cleaned this morning by a mobile guy Jay who has his own business "Brisbane Fuel Injection Services" 0448 500 800, decided now to do this each service. He charged me $45 as he was local, normal min charge is $60. He showed me the spray pattern before and after and the change in delivery flow timed over 30secs and it was improved so I reckon well worthwhile.
