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

So I've just been generally messing about with my bikes as I'm resting from actually riding, history of gendarme with radar gun and my velocity ho-hum. Cleaned front brake caliper and freed up pistons therein, found what I think is looseness in the gbox sprocket (still waiting for advice on that in maintenance guys) and then thought "Haven't taken the carbs off for ages, why not?"
I found this when I took out the air filter:

Spring clean Gedc1311
Spring clean Gedc1310

They are yew berry kernels from the tree just behind my garage, I think the mice have been having winter raves in there! They've even stuffed them in the pleats in the filter and chewed through it just to make sure I have to replace it the wee swines. 

Good job I looked!

Have fun, I can't 'til July, Dave.

Looking at the bottom photo that looked like a red eye! Cool photo, glad no damage was done.

Swines! Better that than chew your wiring I suppose.

When I started on my project which had been standing for 6 years,  the air filter contained about a cupful of sweetcorn and a nest of dried leaves! Fortunately the critter had moved out!
