@ Skydork... I do owe you a beer! You were 100% right. I got the bike back from the dealer and he advised I need to replace the battery, AGAIN. (btw Deltec load tested the battery & all was fine)
As a client of his, I was very disappointed at his lack of after service, anyways screw him....
Downloaded the service manual of the forum and used Skydorks advise as a guide. First thing I did was drain fuel tank(in case of bad fuel), changed plugs & oil, tested rectifier and stator...
Stator was fine, but the rectifier was faulty... Replaced with a new one.
After a full charge on my "faulty" battery and fresh fuel, bike is running very smooth throughout revs, no splatter and battery is getting sufficient charge.
@evilaugust... Im from South Africa so my odo reads in km, its now just over 36000km (roughly 22000 miles).. It's a old boy, but runs like a beast.
Thanks for all the info. guys, really appreciate it.
