Not anymore I'm afraid, Ray retired a few years ago.

Is there anyone else. Or does anyone offer a new replacement. Mine is wet sumping something terrible. Most of the tank in about a week. I'm not fitting a tap. I want it right.

Quite often just facing the plates off will give a marked improvement.

You could try Dave Summerfield (poptsova on this forum) who reconditioned mine with, I think, an oil seal at one end of each pump and an o ring at the other. He did a great job, including machining the plates and my twin no longer wet sumps, judging by the lack of smoke at start up!

Thank you. It doesn't look like it was sent. I've got to get it off the bike, which I can do this week. If you can give me address and contact details I'll get it on the way. I did fancy having a go myself, but it will never get done if I went down that road.
