It was not till i mixed the bowl around i noticed the problem had changed from one pot to the other. After another strip down i seen the little channel in the bowls and one was blocked causing fuel starvation.

    Last thing that happened to this bike was it had the carbs cleaned by my slightly obsessive mate. having seen they didnt turn the fuel on after, I didnt even look at the others as he will have sorted the lot properly. Famous last words..
