right now I`ve got your attention:joker:

did a service 3 weeks ago and fitted new plugs[4] and pipercross filter and removed airbox snorkel and made 2 15mm holes in front of Airbox.

now getting 57-59mpg on the motorway at 65mph:D but have developed a vibe at aroung 4-4.5k in the rev range, bike pulls like a train at 5k .

NOW before I reattach all the moded bits or attempt to balance carbs , thought if anyone could meet me at the weekend on their bike we could swap to see if either bike is smother, or ride mine BUT DONT DROP IT:mad: .

what do you all think

I agree with lutin,
When I changed my filter I had to balance the carbs to allow for the better volume of air they got.
I did not modify the air box as the filter is freer breathing.

cheers, squire:toothy4:

would like to get it done asap as its giving me a numb right hand after only 30mins ride , somewhere nearer would be best.

will give me local mechanic a call and see what he wants to do the job, but could prob buy a twin balancer for the same money and do the job myself.
