    Loosen the exhaust at the barrel , let it blow and see if it improves a bit. If so then blocked exhaust .

    You can just unplug most of the loom and reg/ rec and just leave the ignition. You will need to wire in a kill switch unless you keep the Honda one.

    Ossa Mar - Had Painted Casings, Is It Necessary?

    On later bikes especially Japanese what was a fashion was also a money saver for the factory as the casting and alloy content could be of a cheaper quality, not a problem if any markings in the cases as they were going to be painted. ACF 30 is a good protection for blasted cases. Being nosey what sort of price was the vapour blasting ??

    Pre 65 In Scotland Today ?

    Exactly Jon, trouble is as you know they are fitters now not really mechanics any more, more so with a main dealer ship. Fair play to your lad for pursuing the trade and seeing through it for what it is. He is best to get relevant paper work and move on . Car and bike trade is full of people who can plug in a gizmo and fault find. The argument goes on and on, no real metal work classes or lathes in schools etc etc .
