    Chased similar issue with a 400EX, thought it was valve adjustment. Though the valve adjustment was needed, it ended up being a fuel issue. Lean on idle. What you think is an air screw is actually a fuel screw.

    Maintenance was so lacking,, it came to me needing the whole axle carrier needing replacement because the bearings worn so bad the axle wore into the carrier.

    Yeah I have checked it over and bearings all good and chain rollers look like stock ones. :)

    I think the camera is broken. Bit of sh*t only recorded 1.2 of what it should have. Taking it back to shop tomorrow. Before I throw in the bin.

    2nd time its stop recording and missed recording the rabbit running side me and the dogs chasing me today.

    Got some new handle bars and kill tether yesterday. Handle bars on sale so got them and got the kill tether to replace the broken one that was on the bike. Just need to get some new hand grips now.

    Got my kill tether installed today after drawing up a bracket and had mate CNC cut it.

    Bent the bracket a little to get it lower and setting in nicer place.
