Are you talking about the black vinyl ribbed floor runner? How did you secure it? Pan head sheet metal screws?

waterpump seal

I was losing a little coolant so with 28600 miles I figured I needed to do the water pump rebuild. Took it apart. To find that the shaft looked good So I just put a new seal in and buttoned it back up. Heated it up to four bars in the garage, checked for leaks and all looked good. Rode over to put a couple of gallons of gas in and went for a short ride, very short. Coolant started leaking out my lower hose, getting on my rear wheel and first right hander I spun out. Safari tank guards held up fine But my collar bone did not, torn all ligaments to the shoulder

That super sucks but thanks for giving me something else to worry about when I get my bike fired up.

Old next to new.

I will let you know...if it turns out good i ordered enough to whip a few.

Its grey 1000 denier cordura coated fabric with some nice thick thread. Should last forever, be water proof, and look decent too.

whoa ..... ! something doesn't look right
are you sure that is the new upgraded water pump shaft ?
it looks like the old style
the new upgraded shaft should be black if I am not mistaken, like the one in dogslobbers post

That's a CJ Designs hardened shaft on the left. The CJ shafts (36K miles guaranteed) are darker than as reflected in that photo. I think it's just the lighting. I just bought the CJ hardened shaft and can't wait to get it in the bike.

That looks like the stuff I used.

I just reused the original mounting strips and screws that were already on the Gobi's.

Nice work. Aren't u gonna put a tube between the stock peg and the extension for more lateral strength ?

Like these? Not strong enough.

The new ones are much stronger, strong enough i would say, 4 bolts contra 3 bolts. They have to brake apart before the frame mount brakes. So its a fine balance between things

I'm sorry, but the comment about breaking the frame because the foot pegs are 1 inch longer always troubles me. Stating that this is a fine balance without having done exhaustive finite element analysis to understand if this is a problem is just a shade tree mechanics. There are so many variables involved with this, that it is meaningless to state that the method you are attaching the extension with will really even matter. What type of alloy is used in the frame? In the frame weld? What is the quality of the weld? Same questions for the foot pegs material. What about the type of impact? Which direction, tip over or high side or slide? What is the rate of impact?

If you want longer pegs, weld on some extensions with reasonable end loop reinforcement, and be done with it. No sense over thinking this problem.

I'm interested in this black shaft stuff, I always carry a spare shaft and seal in my kit on long rides but my spare is silver like the original, it was purchased around 2 years ago and was supposed to be the upgraded version at that stage.
Can anyone tell me the difference between it and the black one and when the black one was released

A better idea would to get a truly hardened shaft that will really last:

{No affiliation. It's just a good product).
