I use a drop of Moreys upper cylinder lube when i remember (trying to use up bottle i bought ages ago), no idea if it does any good, i'm sure if you put too much in it the cause of plugs sooting up.Likely not use it when it runs out.
Alloy valve seats shouldn't need anything for unleaded. If the seats and valves are worn, do a top end overhaul.I have the ballend adjusters too (T140)with no probs.

What the tin top buffs reckon

:220 Just keep riding it, and adjust tappets as needed, it's more fun long term :151

Mouse mate, you know i would love to,but you try riding the bloody bike in any temps above 30 and it will run like shit!!!!!
And I am getting a bit pissed off with adjusting the tappets just about every two weeks cause thats how bad it gets. It's ok if you live in a country that is colder but here in WA it's more HOT then COLD.And if you ride your bike once in a blue moon then thats fine but i need it for every day transport, and when your waiting at lights and it want's to stall cause it's just to hot,well..... that just takes the fun out of it for me! unless someone here can come up with a possitive solution....then i am going to hang on to it after all i spent enough $$$$$ on it and i had to wait 3 F@#$%^!N years as well!
