I called Hank today and he's adding that bit to the fuel pump overhaul. Thanks!

Studied the whole fuel path.

New fuel pump. Will carry the still good existing as a spare.

Adding (actually, Hank is adding) the flange reinforcement bit as mentioned above.

Hank replaced the Fuel Pump Controller. Carrying the still good existing as a spare.

Ordered a "Burns Cable" (SAE connection selected) to back up the back up FPC. Will probably end up using this to help someone else riding a GS who has a FPC failure.

Hi Bato. Thanks, Yes I took them with the WG-1 (Pentax ruggedized point and shoot). I love that camera!

They opened up a new stretch of the Autopista. We did downtown Maz to DGO in 4 hours.
