Welcome mate, they'll be along soon enough moaning about the lack of pics, mark my words!
Watch those brakes if the bike's sat a while, renowned for sticking calipers, wouldn't want you warping a disc! :thumbup:
Look forward to the pics, is it an RD04 or RD07?

As far as I know its a rd07y and will probably need work on the brakes as its quite hard to push when I parked it up but will keep you guys informed to what I find after a ride out. There seems to be a few drops of fuel or oil on the floor near the side stand and its only been parked up for an hour will investigate further tomorrow

And the job after that is put yer name forward for www.thelongestday.og.uk and see if the bike and you are capable of a lomg ride, that will sort the problems out and you will have an army of blokes and girls to help you along the way :thumbup:

Don't ride too much with sticky brakes as the heat can build up and warp your discs.
I have a drop or two of oil on the floor after parking up for a while like you. I've had a thorough check of my output shaft seal and gear selector shaft seal which are both fine. I'm sure that it's just a build up of chain oil (scottoiler) and so I've wedged a bit of washing up sponge between the frame and bash plate to catch it.
