Another short ride this morning and it was still pretty woeful just off idle.
I put in a bottle this as Pete suggested



As well as fiddled with the pilot mixture screw and another squirt up to Healesville with some 100k stuff and it is running a lot smoother.



Might try a run to work next week to see how it goes when cold.

Since it's been standing around for so long, a quarter cup of Metho (on top of the injector cleaner, no worries) will get rid of any "water/ condensation-pockets" in the lines and carb.
It doesn't hurt things at all, whatever it might do is a (cheap) bonus.

When asked what you call a collection of bikes Nev came up with an 'expense'. Sums it up nicely.

Can't ride them, but I can wash them (then annoy the neighbours and idle them until they are warm and then take them for an Italian tune up around the block)

OK, so I rode them :-p
