I havent had a look to see if anything got disconnected but will have a look just in case but at a glance it didnt seem like there was anything nor did i go at them :/

I had a look after it had cooled down, about an hour after i had pulled up just to be on the safe side

Similar issue happened to me before, bike was spluttering after lying up for a while, after checking everything it turned out to be, as you said, dodgy fuel. My money is on that

Drain the tank and empty the carb float bowls too. If they are manky, might be no harm taking them out for an ultrasonic clean.

Refill with fresh juice.

Cools thanks. By any chance are the float bowls easy to access on the thundercat or will it involve taking things off

Not sure tbh, if you can drain the chamber nearest you, you'll get an idea if there's much crud and residue in the other 3.

You might get lucky with fresh fuel though.

This although I was lucky enough to get away with just emptying the tank

Cools il try just taking it out of the tank first and see while i check the pipes for the air too. If that doesnt work il try the floats. Now just to make sure i dont screw up taking the tank off

So had a poke around at some of the pipes, or at least what I thought are the air pipes ��, and they all seem to be connected up.

Drained the fuel out of it today and it seemed to be rather dark as opposed to clear but not sure if there was water in there or not
