I am running the same battery for the past 4 years.
I am running the same set of NGK plugs for the past 5 years.
I am running the same set of UNIs for the past 5 years.
All mechanicals unchanged.
All the above statements remain true, except you do a +1 to all the years mentioned above :D
The above post was in July 2011. So, the updated figures are as follows.

It has been about 8 years since my bike rolled out of the dungeon. There has been absolutely no breakdown whatsoever.
I am running the same battery for the past 7 years.
I am running the same set of NGK plugs for the past 85 years.
I am running the same set of UNIs for the past 8 years. Yes, the UNIs have crumbled with age now, time to get a new set.
All mechanicals unchanged.

I still love my bike as much as ever!! Thanks to Ron!!

Oops, I am definitely not running the same NGKs for 85 years as mentioned in the post above, it was a typo!!
Supposed to be 8 years. And yes, the plug tips are a nice dry brown tan, they do not show their age and they still work like a charm.

Thanks Kaushik.
People say my memory is crap. But it feels like only yesterday. I had this young guy bring his bike over from Chenai.
For a CDI install.
After we put in the CDI we found that the bike was not sounding right or running right. And then we opened up the top end and found. Dalada daba thin liners and a half sleeve job.

I then did a full sleeve job for you.
I also remember you carrying back a complete manifold with TB and injectors from the UK for me. Back when I wanted to EFI my esteem. LOL.
Happy memories fun memories.

Its sweet that people I meet and worked with over 8 years ago still make the pilgrimage to RDD every year. Day in and day out.
Friends like this is what makes life.

Id also like to thank you for your support my through short 2 years in racing. And being there at the chenai track for almost every race.

Snigger! Snigger! :lol:

I am really proud that almost all RDD builds are such long running engines. Really speaks about the engine builder's caliber to build and the owner's ability to care for the machine.
