and I hope a happy ending is not to far away, its getting to be a embarrassment pulling up at the local sunday bikers meeting café standing talking for a hour, then kicking my little hart out, then a massive cheer when it rocks up, I will update, and thanks again

The moment its difficult to start, try putting a NEW set of plugs in it.
Perhaps not outside the cafe though....
And study if the plugs you take out are wet or dry.

Try turning off the fuel as soon as you stop the motor.......A hot flooded motor is near impossible to start,and that sounds like what is happening here.........As for the cheer,a friend of mine used to get a cheer when his bike started outside the pub,but the really big cheer was when it caught fire.

If the "magic box" is under the tank it might be getting hot when the bike is standing after a run. Just a thought.
Getting grumpy.
