Well the old girl got me home..........just.
Had a 100km blast out through round the lake.
Lost a foot peg after 30km which entered a new time zone when it fell off and is lost forever Embarassed

Right indicator button lost it's spring, so it's quite difficult to turn on.

Bike lost power when coming to traffic lights twice. This was after an extended high throttle run. It didn't stop, just seemed to be lack/ or incorrect fuel pressure. Was thinking fuel pump as mine appears to buzz


But my main concern is a slipping clutch. Tried adjusting but think it may be oil on the plates. It's fine when cold, but as it heats up, starts to slip. Any ideas.

Apart from that, she's old and heavy but comfortable All in all, great to be back on 2 wheels.

The clutch is probably just worn out. Check the thickness and the steel pressure and drive plate for warped. They tend to dish with heat over time. Oil is possible but there needs to be a lot in the housing to get on the clutch plate.
Oil usually comes from a hard and worn seal on the rear main.
Take advantage of the situation and lube the gearbox input shaft spline.

Check the fuel filter in the tank. They can clog up and restrict the flow if they haven't been changed for quite a while.
Pumps can be quite noisy even when they're ok. With pumps it tends to be a sudden death.

Well getting there....clutch has been adjusted and appears better.
The misfire looks like an injector issue, there was a small amount of corrosion on the terminals. Cleaned them carefully and applied electrical grease. Test run tonight;)
