That’s good news Paul, glad you have sorted it. I will hopefully be picking my bike up on Saturday morning and Barry will have it all tuned up. Are you going to Barton on Saturday? If all is well we will be there about 5.00pm.
It'll go eventually.

Picked the bike up from Barry on Saturday and I’ve got to say she is a pleasure to ride now. I’ve spent two years stripping the carbs and rebuilding them with different jets etc as well as checking and re checking the the timing etc. A few days with Baz and the surging is cured, all down to balancing the carbs with the correct know how and equipment. It was praise indeed to hear Baz talk about how much he enjoyed riding the bike and his opinion on how surprisingly fast she is for a 550. The moral of the story is, any bucking/ surging don’t mess about,send the bike to Baz.
It'll go eventually.
