    Jordan got it right!
    Well,
    It was seizing up when riding and it wouldn't start up when hot.
    So i sent it off to be done fast.
    Ended being the slowest repair ever.
    But for good reasons i guess Smile

    50 special.
    It was the electrics on it.
    It was using the points system on the badboy.
    So been converted to a 12v to get rid of the points.

    Got it back, vespatronic is beaut.
    Starts constantly with no problemo.
    However, running a bit too lean and the inline fuel filter is slowing down the flow of petrol.
    Therefore it isn't bad on but it's getting there Smile

    I'd say pulling yer pud is one of the oldest methods of killing time. Not like kids today with their mobile phones and flick knives.
