So I've heard, he's well respected for his RS and RGV race parts. The RGV my mate Danny trialled had Cougar RED heads and a set of their powervalves, and they were about the only things that didn't give any trouble. Our good mate Jamie Cooper's now taken over that bike, and is winning races.

E-Bay is your friend, I picked up a 400/4 Yam the other week for peanuts. It needed a new exhaust, so I was back on E-Bay and I won one this morning. I now have a winter hack for getting to work. The insurance cost the same as my 125 and I have three times the power.
