I finally got my Dr. Bean fuel pump kit installed. Perfect timing. The bike has 21,000 miles on it and the points were getting really close to being shot.

Rode mine from the Girls house to home. 37 miles of two lane each way mountain highway in a pouring rainstorm. Love the look on the cagers faces as I blow by

Made an GPS bracket and mounted it on the bike. Guess I`m going to look for some other screws...

Where did you buy your fork springs? UK supplier?

dont judge him by his unfinished website, he is a proper expert with WP suspension.

My 450SXS could ride over roots and steps as if they were not there after Chris had done his stuff :)

Use locking nuts and just cut off the excess bolt with a Dremel or hack saw. Nice bracket, simple is good.

Thanks! I think it will work well. Just found the original screws and nuts that come with the garmin GPS (with locking nuts), so I guess I`ll be alight

Rode mine around town running errands. About 40 miles worth. Confirmed my fuel pump mod is working OK.

Finally all the parts have arrived, so I've started to put her together

It's always when I loctite everything and torque up to specs, I discover that something is wrong.. Now the speedo cable

10 Clcius today... was able to put everything back together and then had the first ride of the season !


I'm extremely happy I did the maintenance on the fork and add some spacer (5mm) on top of the 52N spring...
The front is now perfect and no more dangerous movement from the front wheel if I remove my hand from the bar
