Apologies for yet another possible carb issue / tickover problem post but before I go and take the bike for some dyno time and tweaking I've been trying to make sure everything else is ok.
Work so far including recent work by the previous owner -

I'm new to this forum so I apologise if this has been discussed. I did so a search but couldn't find anything exactly like my problem.

I've recently purchased an rd03 which is in nice condition (67000kms in theory!), but it backfires when off the throttle - not badly, more a tinkling pop pop with the odd loud crack.
I suspect this could be down to the Suzuki exhaust can that has been bodged on, but maybe it could be the sign...

I've been running an FX650 Vigor for 4 years without any problems. The mileage is low at 8500, and consequently most components are pretty well as new. The bike had one previous owner, with a dealer service book showing regular services. Carrying out a routine oil change this week...

I dont have access to a welder so I decided to bolt some stuff together for a quick bodge.
A bit of old street sign and some 2 kr coins.
I had to drill the centre hole of the cash out to 6mm so my bolt would fit through four of the coins.
All in all it cost me 16 kr (£1.60) and a lot of...
If you put the bike on its centre stand, grab the back wheel and attempt to lift wheel up and down, should there be any play????
I'm getting a few mm of play, and was wondering if this is normal or a sign of wear somewhere eg Linkages etc

My AT gave me a shock from the HT lead, or cap perhaps (forgive me if I don't go out and try it again a couple more times to try and figure out exactly where it's coming from!)
Admittedly I had just hosed the bike down thoroughly (still gritting the road around here) so it was running with...
