Cheers anotherguy. Now after getting the tank cap vents much cleaner I'm wondering whether it's that or something further down the line... any ideas? If it is the cap, any other ideas on how to get those little vent holes clear?

Will pull the exhaust and have a look and take photos ASAP before any more riding. I hope I haven't messed this up :(.

Just to clarify the terminology, no fuel = seizure? I presume if no fuel/oil gets up into the combustion chamber above the piston, then the rings get no oil and they stick, right? I'm a complete noob.

There is one other thing I have noticed that the bike has nearly always done. That is, particularly in 1st or 2nd and early in the ride (after warm up, of course), it will often not rev completely freely. At low rpm it will be fine and then it will only rev up until a ceiling and 'stick' at a constant rpm. After a few accelerations it will stop doing it. What could this be?

Thanks for your reply.
