    When I put in an order to Motorworks I'll stick an Avon Roadrider front on the list, then pull the front wheel off the dormant K, drop it off for fitting/balancing and then swap it into the K fronted DMW boxer, not least because it'll have another pair of disks on it. The current ones are slightly warped so as you can feel a sort of judder when you grab the front anchors. It got an advisory on it at the last MOT.

    I've not spoken to him as I'm out of phone credit & the bike's off the road, so I'm not sure quite how comprehensively his gearbox is lunched, or why it's happened, but the warranty ran out on that bike years ago :lol3

    On the other hand I might ask him how much he wants for it :lol3

    So, the fix is in, but I don't think it's a good one because I don't know exactly what I did that sorted it, and that's always a bad sign because whatever I jiggled that sorted it may well jiggle itself unsorted again...

    Had I the time, and were the weather more temperate I would of course keep going till I found it & rectified it, but my life being as it is I just need to get rolling again & keep going till it reappears.

    I know this is probably a mistake, but there ya go...

    Some miles done, and both the charging circuit & misfire are both still behaving...

    ... But there's still a popping in the inlet tract until it's well warmed thru/ough, so while electrics to seem to have been the source of the left carb issue, there still seems to be a little something going on with the mixture or something.

    I had popping all the way back from the dragon. My oil temp gauge was reading less then 50 deg C for the 200 mile ride home.

    It happened at 2000 revs left cylinder only. may need a tune up.

    In other news my ka(k) has a flat
