Kind of wierd but but the fix was simple enough once I thought of it.
Seems the new 88+ needels are made of AL and wear relitively fast. the Po may have fiddeled some with settings and dammaged it but...
Now selling My 99R1100gs to go back to airhead GS much slower but I feel much more capable of repairing when ( not if) things go wrong.
