Fitted the new Coil, CDI and Battery tonight and they made no difference!  So that's it - it simply HAS to be a fuelling issue and the carbs will have to be removed. I should have done the job tonight but I was feeling a bit pissed off with it all, so I left it for another night.

Money is never wasted when there's ebay. :-)
Float levels perhaps? Or has someone 'converted' the carbs so that it could be run on a bhp restricted license.

Hi Pete,
I think I'll be refitting the original bits and selling the new ones on Ebay as you suggest. The carbs are the one item which I gave over to a professional company for ultrasonic cleaning and they also fitted the Keyster Kits bits.

It's now looking like that ONE part of the refurb I allowed someone else to do, is the one part which is not right. Of course, I might be speaking out of turn - I'll probably do the job tonight, so we'll know soon enough.
