    thanks again for the welcomes, I am in the car today as the bike is running rough, and yeah loads of torque from about 3.5 up to 4.5 where the exhaust and engine sound sweet, then unless I try and accelerate slower it feels empty and strangled :(

    I am no boy racer (39 this year ) but driving down a slip road accelerating hard(ish) as a test a vw boro tdi left me for dead after about 50mph. it was almost like I needed to keep the revs between 3.5 and 4.5 to get any real power.

    I dont really mind about this that much for a few weeks as my wifes previous 899cc fiat compared to this is a bit of a big gap, so I will get a haynes and check it out over the next couple of weeks.


    thanks again
