"Sounds drastic but sometimes the simplest solution is to just fit another carb which you can pick up for £10-£20 on ebay from China...... pretty sure that'll sort the problem out.  The only snag is can take a couple of weeks to arrive."

"Mine had the same problem and the dealer replaced the carb and that sorted it, but it cost over £100 as out of warranty a cheap chinese one from ebay is only £10.00 and they also work fine."

I agree, the W…"
