Thanks a lot guys, I am confident that all is ok, I do hope I didn't damage the ABS unit though, I guess I won't know till I test ride the bike. Once that is done I will post here again but may not be for a while.

Cheers,
Reece.

I put the seats on, left the Tupperware off, added a little petrol and gave it a test.
No ABS faults!
Front and rear brakes work well, the rear is a lot more touchy than before.
No petrol leaks, one thing is that the choke idle speed is much higher (2k), possibly the new fuel filter?? confused

All in all a very happy chappy!! yes

Thank you all for the much appreciated help/guidance. thumbsup

The "choke" on your bike is really just an additional throttle cable and does the same as if you were just holding the throttle/twist grip open a bit. Could be just easier access to fuel/air now or the cable might have been "adjusted" by your service work inadvertently - as long as you have the plastic off, maybe check to make sure it's not hanging up on anything.


*insert witty remark here*

and then adjust to proper range...


If my mind wanders, should I follow it?

Hi, been a while since I checked here, yes I will have to adjust the choke.
I have to start a new thread since the bike has now died!!!

Reecehk,

Re: "...one thing is that the choke idle speed is much higher (2k), ...", you might want to check the "choke" cable from the handlebar to the Bowden box, make sure all the cable sheaths are fully seated.

Make sure the RH side throttle cable is properly seated at the Throttle Body end......!
