Everything this lot have said...there used to be an Off-road map available just to give the motor a bit more gist, even after all the above has been done mine too this day has 2 tick overs depending how it feels on the rare occasion it gets wheeled out.

Wheelies. Wheelies damage head bearings.

And sadly £900 for a service with the valve clearance in is not far off what dealers charge these days.  I have a friend who got his 800 done at Fowlers and it wasn't much away from that.

So get puncture=replace bike (obviously simplifying..)...Hmmmmm not sure the CFO of our house will buy into that one...Unlike a cat, I only have one life, so not going to add that to any agenda soon.....

But Glad your happy Geoff. Steamer did its thing, but I really like Fuel Injection.....But the Steamer just has presence, I think we all miss them more than we admit, even with our new fangled machines.

I’m afraid that would mean you would ride it to the IOM. ;)

Glad to hear it Geoff! The 1950 is a lively engine.

Sorry to be late to the thread. All of the above.

Do the simple stuff first.

I'm assuming it's had a good service first ie new plugs, oil ait filter and that the connectors and coil sticks are in good condition.l (no cracks in the epoxy).

There's a hose runs from the airbox to the ECU. Check its connected and there are no leaks. The grommet where it pushes into the airbox is favourite. It should be a good fit. It matters.

Check the IACV hoses for splits, leaks and fix those next.

Finally, balance the throttle bodies.  Its the single best thing you can do to calm a grumpy Girly. They go out of sync really easily.

If, after all that  its still lumpy, a map refresh will reset all the trims and that should work. No point in refreshing the map till you're sure there's no other problems.
