Hello,
Turned 40 a year or 2 ago, live in Cairns.
Brought a 2005 1200s 29'000km @ 6 months ago (first road bike after life of dirt bikes) Best thing I ever did ! Wish I did it years ago.

Tidy bike stock apart from delkavic full system, Unfortunatly as I am getting used to it and could not bloody help my self I decided to put a jet kit and KN filter (was running very lean) and now it is completely fxxked( gunna put all the stock gear back in for now and get the float heights hopefully back where they were before

Welcome to the forum Rusty.

A good Idea get back to basics, get it running properly again. I'm sure the 1200 boys on here can then help you out.

Thanks heaps Guys.

I will endeavour to put all the stock jetting etc back in over tomoz and hopefully get it running properly again.
Still keen to tweak it up a bit but I think best to start fresh from the base line but this time with some more solid advice from others experience and know how.


Thanks again Gents.

Good to see you're having a win mate.
Can you continue the tuning/tweaking in Mechanical or general please? Feel free to start a new thread cheers
