Diagnostic week - still she saved the problems till we got home

She's running rough - seems like weak fuel 
 checked everything and cleaned the carb etc and last checked the manifold rubbers
the cometic  are a soft compound and loose fit - one showed signs of leakage
found some James rubbers - these are harder and tighter haha -it worked
 By the way this book is great
 she ran ok then really rough - baffle blown out of front pipe, then later started running on one cylinder!
replaced the single fire with the old leads and ran ok - but back to not wanting to start!
 heres the new stuff  - all in one week
Would not start in the end without  The single fire leads so a new set ordered
Seems it  does give a bigger spark firing on one plug at a time
2nd kick and what a ride! AND started on third kick warm after 60 miles and an hours break at clives chop shop and a real fast ride back. 
 Jay - Clives son at SoLow getting a brief on making some new bars
