    Not sure, just noticed it. It's not on the major welds. On the top of the frame where the tank and seat meet. Not been in any accidents that I know of, which covers the last 4 years or so.

    Just had a look at the manual and can't see how to do this. Are they at the throttle body? What do I do, spray brake cleaner when the engine is running and monitor the idle - this is how people...

    Thanks for the info guys. Will have a look at the Buelltooth and change the plugs. Also, the exhaust is pretty banged up so I bet it does have some air leaks. The popping on decel doesn't bother me...

    I'll give them a going over, cheers. Would worn fork bushing only be apparent when moving? Forks don't have any play and neither does the swingarm. Bike has only done about 30k km
