Well mOT passed and I have been out a couple of times since, but when I parked it up last time I noticed a strong whiff of fuel. Sure enough there is what appears to be a sticky float or something wrong with one of the carbs. So I have popped into a local bike shop I am friendly with for them to remove, clean, re-fit and balance them. Should improve the riding experience a bit.

It did have a slight misfire. I had just fitted new plugs bought at a good price from ebay. I was suspicious…so I bought a fresh set from my local dealer and fitted them last night. The bike ran much better this morning on the way to the shop. Lesson learnt methinks!
