She is now finally got to bottom of it. The main jets were stamped 115 but had been drilled out. Fitted another set correctly sized and bingo all good. Only thing now is I got clutch slip at 5500 so will look at that this week. Might get it round Donington yet at weekend  :D

Found clutch slip, there was only 6 friction plates and 2 different length of spring. Sorted that then the cluch hub started making horrible knocking sound so changed that too. Wasn't happy with the long rear mudguard so that has been chopped down. Hopefully roadtest tomorrow and it will be sorted  ::)
