There might be some crap stuck in the fuel system. A can of seafoam would do it wonders.

Yep, break out the seafoam. Most auto parts stores sell it, located in the fuel additive section. In your case, I'd add 1/2 can, run it for a few minutes and then let it sit for a couple days. It should dissolve any varnish and crud in the fuel system. Then run that tank through and fill her up and add the rest of the seafoam. See if that doesn't cure the problem. Use about 3 oz of seafoam in a full tank about once a month to keep things clean.

Be sure and use only the Seafoam--not Sta-bil, or some other fuel system additive.

Seafoam has a proven track record with our bikes!

It really is amazing stuff.....

Well, if I'd known you were in the UK, I wouldn't have bothered you with it. So far, Seafoam isn't available in the UK to my knowledge. They're trying to get distribution set up as we speak. I don't know if there is an equivilent of seafoam that would work so well.

Also, check the airfilters. They may need cleaned, or if original, will most likely need replaced.
