Sorry late update. Work has been manic!

So listened at start up, heard the ticking.

Decided to pull the bike apart, checked plugs, leads. Little spray here and there. Set the TPS. Tightened it up. Added a cleaner to fuel.

From researching some posts here I then tried a couple other bits before a test ride. Disconnected the battery for good 20 mins. Reconnected. Started and left bike alone with no throttle. Let it get to temperature and fan cut in. Turned it off.

Then took it to work on a ride and so far so good! Kinda waiting for it to go but fingers crossed. 3 days in and appears sorted. Have along work trip tomorrow, that will be the real test.

Thanks guys.

Hopefully pal. Just given it a dose of GT85. Frankly, I just like the smell!

One of GT85's many properties is as a water dispersant, if I was a gambling man I'd wager there lies the fix. I've just done mine with an entire 600 ml can of Triple QX maintenance spray. Used plenty of GT85 in the past.

What was the theory behind disconnecting the battery and letting it idle until the fan cut in?

Read a post on here that it resets the ECU. By letting it tick over it does something techy to the computer - calibration or similar black magic that is beyond me. All I know is it seems to have worked!

Sorted. Bit the bullet, bought another TPS. Repeated the above and calibrated it. Sorted!
