    Couldn't agree with you more, if they put an oil pump on the bike, why not use it.

    Yesterday :
    Put in a new gasket for the cam chain tensioner as I had it off a few times and the old one was ,Im sure, the original and half was stuck on the motor and half on the CCT .... and wat an arse to get off.

    Today:
    Worked on the carbs , then worked on the carbs , then did a bit on the carbs.
    Then when I got bored with that I did some stuff on the carbs.

    Currently giving the bike a fresh lick of paint. I'm working on the tank right now. Did a bit of corrosion treatment to the seam and sprayed it with putty to hide all the bumps. All this fairing repair and paint work is daunting; the tunnel seems very long with barely any light at the end.
