    Pig in a POKE

    I loved mine. As Blackwell says a bit of a tank and as a relative short arse, I loved that. Took me all over Britain and Ireland on a number of times and never let me down. The carb rubbers are expensive nowadays and as with any four, a bugger to fit. Did I mention that I loved mine. It was everything my xs250 wasn't.

    I done mine in December 81 on the same format as Meats. It was a mad rush for a test at the 125 laws was coming in June 82 so we were all rushing to get through it. I actually sat it on my mates xs250 us custom because my own xs was off the road. Surprise surprise. He had failed his on 23 December so a fair bit of ribbing when I passed on his bike

    Billy Basic here, but have you checked the fuel breather in the tank, including the tank cap. A blocked breather will give the "hunting" symptoms you describe
