Hi all, using my Slr650 that i bought last year for the daily commute, loving it, nice and light like a 125!, one little niggle is that the bike will konk out sometimes at tick over, starts again fine but just wondering if anyone else has the same issue, the bike hasnt been on the road for 12yrs so kind of breaking it in again, only done 5k so like new.

After a long time standing it’s done really well to run as good as it is. I wouldn’t change anything just strip down the carb and give it a good clean.

OMG, Ian didn't say its the CDi lol

Anyway, imho, service it, clean it, valve clearances - but, make sure you don't over tighten, slightly slack is best imho

Start with new filter and plug, try 4* fuel and maybe even octane booster
