Am quite certain previous owners ran with too much oil in the sump.
Amazed the bike even ran at all.
Certainly worth doing this on a bike purchased from people not on the ghetto when considering a throttle balance map and TPS reset.
Otherwise let the chaos begin and it did  Laughing
Some said their inlets were barely dirty, mine were f*cking filthy, the left one that gets adjusted was the worst.

Takes 3 or 4 leisurely hours to strip clean and refit, piece of piss, thoroughly enjoyed it bar the UK heatwave.

Cleaned plastic stepper motor too!
Fitted a new air filter while at it.
Bike started up first time, needs setting up again, maybe tomorrow Cool

Isn’t it better to ask dumb questions rather than not and fuck something up? Thanks for your testy reply all the same.

Nothing testy about it, concern more than anything else.
Carb cleaners and the like have been around for decades you could even use fuel and a brush.
The throttle bodies are easier to remove if remove the airbox first.
On the left side just forward of the left side plate is a tiny chrome acorn nut.
If you undo it and slide out the support piece it will help make removal easier.
You could try warming the airbox manifolds too as they will be stiff and not want pull free.
Dont bother trying to squirt through the airbox leaving everything in place.
A. you will miss a ton of shit if there is any.
B the ton of shit will still be in there.

Enjoy

Thanks BB good to know you can be helpful. I was concerned originally because carb cleaners might not be good in EFI systems cos they’re electrical . I’ll give it a go
