    Anyway, knowledge is power as they say, so please post the result on here Scootyman. If nothing else, it'll feed our curiosity. Thanks.

    It turned out to be nothing more than two years of condensation build up. Iíve just been up to Skye and around the Highlands for four days and the bike ran perfectly. It never missed a beat and started every time without issue. The Pirelli tyres I fitted also were great. No sketchy moments despite some less than great road surfaces and a bit of leaning going on!
    Business as usual then  :031:

    If I was a gambling man I'd wager it's nothing more than condensation...

    Happy days

    I guess great minds think alike as it was also my first thought as I initially posted. Just nice that itís sorted now.

    If I keep the bike I might go for the big strip down over the coming winter and have the exhausts off and the swing arm out for painting. I could do the valves as well while Iím at it and change the radiator over too. Thatíll bring it right back up to good condition again.
