Hi, firstly check all three choke cables and the splitter, ensuring both enrichment pistons snap shut properly with completely slack cables. Then we can go from there, one step at a time I reckon....

If anyone can point me in the direction for help re above I would be very grateful.
I have had tank and carbs stripped and cleaned plus set up by supposed pro. One day not bad the next rough. Down I think to running too rich but definitely need some 'experienced' help to set up so engine runs somewhere near as it should. ?????

Hi Jeff i am hiring a van/straps to get it to my sister near taunton,but from there to Marbella i could be using a transport company at a very reasnable £2/cube foot but they were recommending putting it in a crate they can get made up,which could also be usefull in the future.

Where is it coming from Chris..?  Most folk use a van and tie-down straps....

I've just taken mine to Santander and back (just over 2,500 miles) in just that manner...  No problems at all...

I've never seen a V1000 crated up, but I have seen one that was a bit of a crate... ;-)

Does anyone have a tatty seat or just the Base they would be willing to sell? I'm looking to update my V1000 seat and need this as a staring point.

Thanks
