GV250

Hi guys, just a short update from my end. Well I have checked the coil and plug resistance and everything seems fine there. I also noticed that the plugs were a sooty black. While I had the tank off I also had a very close look at the intake rubbers and they are definitely in bad shape. I came across some hints about checking these for possible vacuum leaks just by spraying carb cleaner over the cracks while the bike is running and observing any changes in idling. I haven’t done that yet, I’ll probably have time to do that later.

Am I right to assume that should there actually be vacuum leaks in the rubbers this could well be the cause of the symptoms I am experiencing?

I also came across some ideas of using some Super RTV silicone adhesive to block off any leaks should these actually exist. Has anybody ever tried this?

My plan is to check for leaks and should there be any, use some silicone adhesive to temporarily block these off to see whether this solves the problem. Then if it does, start looking to purchase replacement rubbers 🤞🤞🤞. Any thoughts on this idea?

Thanks again for all your help!
