This is the first time I've ever seen a rider re-instated after having been on "the list".
Maybe then it has to do with yesterdays FloodGate and skipping part of the course? or a bunch of waypoints?
Does the ASO ever explain expulsions ?

About transfer fuel pumps on Injected and carbed bikes failing. It seems moving fuel around is a common issue.

I've got a 3L under seat tank on my 05 Husaberg. It is not very often I need it, so I install it for a ride and then take it off when it's not needed. I'm not racing, so I just use air pressure to move it to the main tank. The line gets plugged and coiled up under the seat untill I need the fuel. I blow in a short vent line and kink it, and repeat. the fuel flows out the feeder line into the fuel filler neck. It takes 3 minutes.


What the hell does this have to do with Dakar?

There has to be a better way to move fuel. Perhaps it's been done already, but here's my idea for managing fuel on a rally bike.

Perhaps a simpler way to pump fuel out of auxiliary tanks would be a squeeze bulb built into the seat. Every time you bounce on the seat, it blows air into your rear tanks. Double up the bulbs for redundancy.

Said air pressure would move fuel to the main tank, and could have a pressure relief valve and a on/off valve as well.

It would gravity feed until fuel level is even with the carb, then the seat pump bulbs could be turned on.
In theory, no mechanical fuel pump would be neccesary at all.

Seriously though, why wouldn't it work?

No. Actually this is the first year they've used any verbiage besides "withdrawal" and once you made that list, you were out, no question about it.

Perhaps one could even attach said pump to the swing arm of the bike instead of the seat. I don't know what the percentage of time sitting vs. standing is, but the swing arm is always gonna be there and it'll always move. Regardless of the rider sitting down or not. =)

Worried about Craig Bounds back as that is exactly why I am laid up at the moment, you gotta look after it, if he has burst a disc and it is putting pressure on a nerve root it is only going to get worse and as I have found, it ends up in surgery and f*****g ages for the nerve to recover. Hope he has had it checked out properly and maybe even take the rest day and get an MRI at the local hospital.
