Give it me for half an hour and I'll let you know

Pretty much the only things you have to look out for in a 'bird are reg/rec, stator, oil pipes and maybe a dodgy electrical connector. Apart from that they're pretty sound.

It's usually a sign of a neglected bike but yeah... if the back disc is red hot after a spin, check the CBS system isn't seized on the front left caliper.

It all seems fine, front brake seemed to need a lot of pulling to stop but may need bleeding as pads look fine...

I'll give chopper a shout as I said it's more peace of mind
