Well I can confirm that Colortune plugs are rubbish unless you want to tune your bike in the dark, that or my eyes are broken. 25 mile run out and no leaks, hard to tell if oil level is up with fuel, courtesy of a cold can't really smell much. Will test again tomorrow after taking a pic of the oil level from fixed spot. Hmm....

Hopefully all my carb dismantling is over for this year, has anyone any advice on fuel additives such as this http://www.putoline.co.uk/shop/fuel-...tioner-325-ml/ is it something that's worth using as a preventive measure to help keep things clean? Is there any harm that might come from trying this stuff out?

No disrespect, but man this thread is totally too long.
Try to stick to one topic and start a new thread when you change subjects.
The reason is people lose interest and that causes them to be disconcerned about helping-no help. Everyone has to read a 15 pages just to catch up and understand whats going on. By then no one cares.
But, in reguards to your last question. Since your in the UK, I doubt many of us will be much help, considering most of us are in the USA. Search the gerneral internet (Google, if they've not been banned from the UK yet )
Now the next person will have to back track several replies to understand whats going on...Understand ?
