    Went to check the oil and Tps and oil the chain. Tried to turn it over but it wouldn't idle.

    Revs OK once started but if the throttle is released, it stalls.

    Is it carburettor fuelled Burbs ?
    Sounds like a blocked jet.
    Try giving it a hefty glug of redex.

    As usual, just had a fill up when needing to take tank off, when it weighs 25 kg. Managed evenshhhhhhualy, then it rained.

    Later I had the airbox off and, voila, it's the idle control stepper motor. Luckily (again) I had a spare in the cellar from the previous incarnation (which threw the bottom end on the Severn bridge).

    Took me a while to find it so retired for the day. Very close to where I found it were quite a few bottles of vino. Being weak of spirit, I succumbed. Tomorrow is another day.

    So pleased that I got another identical bike as it has just about paid for itself in spares for this one.

    Replacement worked perfik, until I saw the petrol at my feet.

    Fuel line connector sprung a leak. Can't find my nitrile o-ring stash so ordered some off tinternet. Second jab on Wednesday...infamy, infamy...
