Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Ever wondered where the remains of that original sub air filter ended up?

That's half a worry for me, I don't think mine ever had a filter in it... now I'm wondering if the filter is indeed in it but it is in the carbs rather than the sub air filter

Haha. I suspected something was up with my carbs. Some of the original reviews for the bike describe the throttle response as 'smooth' whereas mine was as bad as the worse fuel injected bikes I've ridden. Not saying these lumps of sticky foam are the definite cause of my problems but can't imagine they are helping too much either way!
