    Well actually that has made some difference . I can actually start it from cold. Not the smoothest but it makes the choke work.

    Maybe I'll balance the carbs and that will be enough.

    Just need to find the pesky clunk in the front end.

    Um - front end clunk story....My Kawa 500 F3 bike uses GSXR400 sliders (ex Tony McMurdo) on kawa stanchions - to use twin discs.
    I blanked off the antidive holes with a cover plate which had slots cut to allow the damping to work - as you do...
    It's always had a front end clunk as you hit the brakes. Nothing's loose inside, calipers and pads don't move, discs don't clunk.
    I've suspected it's an oil gallery air restriction but never worried enough about it to do anything - after all, it wasn't me riding it mainly.

    Odd.
    I did the plate mod on my RG. First time without the slot
    These don't have antidive though. Still need to check it out but will keep that in mind thanks.

    Not sure what happened to the OP.

    GSXR starts like a champ. Those choke holes made all the difference.

    Took it for a wof todsy Failed. Rushed back to her place, extracted a spare top shock bearing to put in the linkage same bearing.

    WOF guy gone home early but I might get rid of this thing yet.

    New tyres months rego.

    Loaded in the van for a refresher lesson on easy roads. Warm it up while she puts on gear. Bike stops. Just like that. No starty. Back in van to home. Hmm, no spark. Arsebiscuits.

    Inside for a cuppa the missus suggests.
    Later I try it and it starts.

    I hate this thing.

    On an old GSX250 I had, it was a broken wire down by the steering stop inside the loom. Came off the ignition, but still wound over on the button.

    I think the ignition lights stayed on and everything.
    Polemic....look it up

    Hmm, ok, might look at that. I had to fix the start button wire previously.
    Odd thing was this was just idling away for a couple of minutes with no one touching it, then nothing.

    Well I thought I knew a thing or two but this bike has me just about bluffed.

    Swapped in spare cdi. Pulled emulsion tube 1. It's a bit oval. Cool. Swapped it for a spare that looked round.

    Starts up on 4, runs the best it ever has when cold.

    Tank back on. Starts on 3!!?!!

    Grr. Clean plug and swap with its neighbour. Swapped dyna coil wires from 1 and 4 just for giggles. Yes the are copper cores.
    Runs great leave it idling for 10 min. Give the ignition switch wires a good wrench around. Crack throttle till gets to line on temp gauge and fan comes on.

    So have I fixed the stall issue with the cdi? Have I fixed the fouling of plug 1?

    Only time and tedious reality will tell.
