Also, Glenn at Rolling Art Motorcycles near Swindon does ultrasonic carb cleaning.
He's a perfectionist.
He does stuff for me.

Had my injectors cleaned when my Triumph went from 120 miles to a tank down to 70 to a tank

cost me 60 in total, the actual results were not that far out, should be around the 5 mark, but they were all around 4.9 and 5.1 so not that bad.

put them back on the bike and got 150 miles to the tank so it must have worked a treat
