Hi both  Have not managed to get it up to running temp so thats one negative, and I have ordered new splitter box to carb cables ,interesting to know it will not run well until warm, my commando is ok with no choke so thought i would try. 150 main jets and 106 needle jet and clip on middle groove,new slides and black floats,also neoprene float shut off valves I will try again
                           thanks for your help

Hi Not had the bike for long and the choke was seized so stripped and cleaned the carbs and put back with no chokes it starts ok with a tickle of the carbs but I am having trouble getting it to tick over, it then stalls and the process is repeated time and time again and spring is here .
