What have you done to it?
Re-jet? Pod filters?

High octane additive won't do owt, neither will re-gapping plugs.

rather fuel additive, bought bike like this a fortnight ago so didnt  know whats been done,  but as my knowledge grows i have found it has the basic air box mod and 38ys fitted. The pipes are cambell 4 into 4.The  baffles are removable and maybe everything is set up to run without them,  i will remove tomorrow. The reason i added the cleaNER to the tank was that over the last five years of mot it shows that the bike only did 300 miles ish a year therefore only shows 6600 miles for a 2002. i know im blabbereing but if i ,,,,,,,,,,,,,no we ,my comrades, cant suss it then its going to the bike shop and the money i was gonna spend on ( insert sad story here) will go to A.N Other

4 into 4, crimes, seems a bit over the top, but hey...
36Y's, btw,
Something like REDeX , won't harm it, but will still do fuck all.
Basically if you've got to clean the carbs the only way is to take them apart and do it properly.

No, i'm not reconning owt, and you can chase a problem for ages without getting to the real problem,
and calling it a bitch is quite normal in my book but I tend to call them bastards.

I put Redex in my last one and it did not like it at all. It coughed and farted until it cleared and then it was okay. Start with an obvious one: Has it still got original petrol in it. Old petrol does not help. If not that, then I would clean the carbs next and I think that may be the reason. My "new" one is 13 years old and had done just 12,000 miles and I have it using a small amount of oil every month, nothing serious but all due to lack of use in my opinion.
