    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.

    Did a proper evaluation of my nose fairing today. (In hindsight, that should've been first on the list). Doesn't look too promising. There's more damage to it than I thought.

    At this point, I'm not sure whether it's worth the time repairing the current ones or just getting an aftermarket kit. I'd come out on top if I factor in hours spent working on the bike vs same hours doing overtime at work, yet I don't want to spend any more money on this bike since I'll only be enjoying it for a few months before selling it. As it is, I'm already making a slight loss with the coin I've spent on it so far.
