  1. Second time lucky, I hope. what I was trying to say was: The choke wasn't on, and I have not messed around with the screws myself, dont know what the previous owner may have done, but Ive had the bike since July and would have thought it would have done it before. I reckon I'll have the carbs looked at / balanced to be sure, as I know about as much as a dead frog about this stuff. Cheers everyone - hope this posts right this time.
  2. Hmm, PC went a bit mad, posted some half written rubbish 3 times and then crashed on me. Just got back on now! Apologies for the garbled crap.
  3. Choke not on, but I guess it could be stuck. Not mucked about with the screws myself, but again, could be... Cheers

  6. Evening everyone, Me again, after yet more advise. Oh the joys of being new to the bike maintenance game!! Took the bike out over the weekend and all seemed fine. Filled up and off I went. However, when I'd done about 90 miles, it started to splutter as if low on fuel, so I turned on the reserve. All back to normal after I re-filled at the nearest garage. My question is: It usuaully does about 120 miles before I need more juice! Anyone have any ideas on why this has suddenly happened? Cheers guys!

    Hi all

    Hi Guys. Thanks for all your comments, I guess I should have started by listing the things I have done already. Might have been useful!! I also wondered if it was being starved of fuel, so I took the fuel pump out and tested it ( with assistance! )as someone said the pumps are rubbish on this model, but its actually very efficient. All been a useful experience, as I've learned a lot, but still frustrating.

    Hi all

    Thanks blackhat. I actually changed the plugs and filter myself when I got the Bike in July.

    Hi all

    Hi everyone. Im new to the forum and to riding. Passed my test at the end of August and have an XJ600 Divvy, which I ride everywhere and love. It has a couple of little niggles, one of which being it does not idle very well, and another being it looses power at low revs. Can anyone shed any light on possible causes please? Thank you.
  13. Thanks for that - it has new plugs and filter, and I even had the pump apart last weekend, and that works fine. Pumps fuel nearly 1m up! Bit of a mystery to me. France was great thanks, I get over a lot as my dad lives in Normandy. Great biking, and great people. Really reccomend it. where are you planning on touring?
