    The R1 isn't well. Its developed either a fuel leak/problem or
    possible air leak. On a few occassions now its seemed to ride like its
    fuel starved (like its being strangled), then it just dies when I stop,
    no tick over, start it up again and it dies. If I leave it to cool
    down for a few mins it starts up fine, but yesterday it carried on
    feeling 'odd' ie like not enought fuel/air was getting through and it
    was stuttery.

    Any ideas? or thoughts? Is there anything simple I can check, I'm not
    sure what I can do myself (bugger all probably!) Or whether someone
    who knows and is local enough could pop over & check it out? (beer
    tokens in exchange of course).

    Ah yes, the old "She won't sleep with me, therefore she a lesbian" theory.

    I found my home town was *full* of lesbians when I first started going out
    on the town...

    You sir are a star, and after discussion with Statto, that seems to be
    a good theory. When it went over it crashed on its lhs and may indeed
    be blocked. Cheers muchly.

    It never showed any warnng lights or error lights at all, but its
    currently at Frasers being sorted out. The Throttle Position Sensor
    went, so it was a b*t$h to ride and fingers crossed may be sorted out
    by Friday morning when I head off to Cornwall for a few days!
    Otherwise its a pillion weekend for me(and occasionally for t'other
    half who's happy to pillion as well).
