I finally got around to it...
This is a new bike for me - a 2015 (orange) with 20,000 km and (supposedly) logbook(ish) servicing at the dealer, the last service was at about 18k. The bloke I bought it off had a very clean garage/jet ski/4wd etc, but was more into dirt bikes - the V was his first (and only) road bike.
But it ran rough at low revs & small throttle openings - I put this down to lack of use. After an hours ride home & another hour out through the hills, plus fresh premium fuel (from a real servo, not a supermarket), it still ran rough.
Then it sat for 2+ months.
I started it this afternoon & ran like a... well, it didn't run well at all.
Idle was all over the place.
It would rev, but then fall back to a very low idle, even stalling.
Black smoke out of exhaust.
So, I'm confused - if the plugs are only 2k km old, why are they so fouled?
I will replace the plugs, but am concerned that there is a real problem causing this.
The air filter is ok, but will be replaced.
I'll have another look tomorrow for loose & split hoses, freely moving throttles etc.
Have any of you fine people got any ideas about what could be the cause of over-fueling & running rough?
