Thanks, good things to check. I'm hoping to locate the failure by going item by item. It's really odd to say the least; this morning head down the road to warm up the bike in order to replace the pan gasket. Ran like a bat. Then when the pan gasket ( also replaced the gaskets in the oil sump pick up) all got bolted together I noticed the rough running on the test run... I'm sure I did nothing to cause it working at the bottom of the bike.
