Replaced the water pump shaft, seal, circlips, and bearings using cjdesigns kit. Followed the HOW instructions to a tee. Went really easy. I now have all the confidence in the world to do it again. Added Engine Ice and bled the coolant system. Changed the air filter, oil filter, and oil. Removed the black plasti dip off the front fender. Looks better orange. But now I'm on the fence whether I want to put the crash bars back on? Love this 950A

Oh and I forgot to add: Previous to this in the time period of about a month, I found the coolant reservoir low on two occasions. In the back of mind I knew it was time to rebuild the water pump. Upon removing the clutch cover low and behold, three dime size spots of milkshake substance. Never had any over heating issues, abnormal chatter/sound. I think I caught it very early. The old oil filter only had a few wavy pleats.

Thank you to the wisdom of this forum!

150 HP in the dirt!!

I turned off the mtc and abs while in sport mode in the dirt on my 1190r. It took me 5000 miles to man up enough to give it a go. Holy shit!! The windscreen was violently twisting and turning ending up in places where it should never be! The back wheel was in front of the back wheel! It takes a smooooth hand. It was fun and takes a lot of focus. Everyone should experience the thrill. I need 150 hp in the dirt. I was in a mix of hard packed dirt, soft dirt, gravel, and mud. I lasted about 10 miles and put it back in off-road mode. Since I'm dangling a dongle I had to manually switch the mtc and abs back on. HW.

You gotta try it with a knobbies! What a blast!

I keep the MTC disabled 95% of the time. I did turn it on again this weekend when I got hungup on a pile of loose rock. "Rain" mode works well to get going again without digging trenches (a lot easier on my tire too).
