She's doing just fine mate ! The hard starting thing has been solved you know she's twin plugged and the coils ( old Jap ones ) were set up in parallel, which is the norm as I understand it .Anyway in desperation I took her into the local bike shop and their bloke changed it to series, something I hadn't thought of. She starts first touch now .Happy me .. it was bloody boring before , lots of very gentle handling to get her to go, once started she was fine but the starting was a nightmare ! I never knew if I was going for a ride until she lit up .

All done and sorted .

Gearboxes ? Mine is good , no false neutrals ,quick and positive .The PO was a mechanic and had her for quite a while and made a few major repairs . She's sweet ! I reckon gearboxes are a bit like Pandora's Box ... don't open unless really necessary .
