I've read that you need to drill out the barb to the manifold for the vacuum source and some have put larger inlet and outlet on the pump it self. I ran one for a while and worked well except under very high loads.

That's a great thought! I don't remember whether the barb orifice is restricted, but will check that out when I get home from work.

I had a similar problem with my SE last year. I thought it was bad gas, plugged carb, clogged filter, etc... After checking all the above and getting the same problem (intermittent backfiring, coughing at higher speeds and RPM's) I was stumped. I took it to a small shop specializing in KTM twins and he was initially puzzled too. Finally, it was solved! There is an electrical connection behind the headlight that was starting to corrode. Connection was cleaned and greased, problem solved! Hard to believe with a carbed bike, but that was the culprit.

Pretty funny, but as I'm going over all the possibilities I was reminded of an old mechanic's saw, "90% of all fueling problems are electrical." Thanks for the suggesting that the source of the problem may be an opportunity to disentangle the spaghetti behind the light. I definitely fear that may be in the offing. However, after checking which vacuum port nipple I'd installed, and discovering it's got a restricted orifice, I'll try that swap first. It won't take long to discover whether that's the culprit. In any case that's a fix which needs to be done, regardless.

Where the boss is on the base at the top of the rubber loop - mine has a double sided "hook" the band loops round. Looks like has been take off this one.

Not near my bike but will try and take a pic later - no promises though, it's the final day of the Six Nations today (rugby) so will be glued to the telly!!!

Cheers

Tool bag

I have CJ's leather bag with a few more things in it and moved the hook/ boss over to the left side. Took the bag out for the pic.
