One of the first things I did when I got mine earlier this year was Oil/filter change, new plugs & air filter. made a huge difference. I also only put super unleaded fuel in too.

Not changed the fuel filter yet though. will probably leave that for when the weather's too bad to ride.  :icon_mrgreen:

Do the throttle bodies need balancing on these?

I didn’t do mine on purpose,on a screen shot off Tune ECU I could see a difference between the coils i’d Changed one a few thousand miles ago but now their half price from WOT changed the other two as well and wanted to see what difference it made before doing anything else.

Saw a halogen heater in my local Lidl's for around £30 the other day so thinking of getting one for the garage so I can at least stay fairly warm this winter when working on bits & pieces.
