    It is the screen for the Dominator. It fits the current 'anniversary' Commandos as they have the Dominator front end.

    Maybe worth checking airbox for excessive oil and starter engine for leaks. If starter engine gasket leaks, it is oil from the gear box. In any case I recommend you to install a tranny vent. What colour have the oil drops?

    Quoting myself to report on the cure ...

    Holy shit - I am so ridiculous sometimes. Another 961 owner on FB reminded me of a suggestion I heard many times here on this forum. When the engine doesn't start happily on the first punch of the starter button, reset the fuel pump and/or ECU by turning off the ignition and back on again and try again. So far it always starts on the 2nd punch. I can't believe how effective this little procedure is. :cool: I should have tried this all last Fall and saved myself a lot of aggravation. :rolleyes:

    As, I think, it tells you to do in the owners handbook ...

    To reset your idle. Turn off ignition. Turn on ignition and twist throttle a few times. Turn off ignition. Turn ignition on and press starter button.
    Thanks to Richard again for the instruction.

    I still find it odd that, at least in my case, this is a constant requirement. I did note all the references to this simple procedure, but expected it to be the exception, not the norm.

    That said, I wil gladly accept it now since it does seem to work. I am no longer in fear of being stranded somewhere 100 miles away from home due to a start up issue. :cool:

    It really isn't the norm. Happens to me rarely, but on occasion. Usually when theres a bunch of other bikers looking on so they can snicker. With the correct mapping and the Bosch coils, its basically a thing of the past. The most tries is two. Maybe one of twenty starts.

    That's a cracking photo Richard! I don't remember Ramsgate looking so picturesque but it has been over 40 years since I last went.

    Started commuting to work on the new bike. Really is a joy to ride. Need to get better side mirrors and a throttlemeister cruise control.
