Yes.
I just wasted over $600 on entry fees for an Historic Road Race meeting. (Plus bike prep, annual leave... etc)
I set up on Friday, (week ago) then spent 36hrs in bed. I haven’t been that sick for a while.

I’ll try next year.

That sucks Iain, if the engine is over heating (a cheap laser temp gun makes diagnosis easier) and the jetting doesn't go blubbering rich at the same time you must be very lean to begin with. Jetting will get richer with heat.

I will be interesting to find the issue. Good luck.
