Agreed in pretty much everything you said.

Hey, me too! I was amazed to see there even was a season 2 because of how season 1 ended but..... well, you know what happened.

I liked season 2 also but it did not match season 1 in my opinion. For some strange reason, I really liked that first season which was surprising to me because I usually do not go for that unrealistic, hodgepodge and disconnected type of format (it seemed VERY disconnected at first but of course tidied up nicely at the end).

I think we are done with that now though as I do not see where there is anywhere to go for another season. But seeing as I thought that about season 1, I could certainly be wrong.....

BTW- the actor who plays the male lead in The End of the F*ing World was also the star of an excellent episode of Black Mirror. He was excellent in that show as well though the whole thing was kinda' depressing (like a LOT of Black Mirror episodes are).

OK, NOW WE ARE DOING "i THINK" stuff.. think... low speed cold idle is where the airflow is MOST criticle, to make a bike run.. not wide open.. a clogged filter will not idle, but will run at higher rpms, when warm.. once the engine warms, the air in the airbox is warmer, and will allow airflow thru the congealed goop, on a cold air filter.. once warmed, it softens, and melts a bit, and air can be supplied..

any bike can run well when it's pressed and at high rpm, not so much off idle, or cold.. and being fuel injected, and not having the same issues a "jetted carb has", air is the prime factor. Now, that said, if valves are "off", they also control flow into the cylinders, but really don't change the performance as much as the "available air just off idle", that a combo of tight valves, and a restricted filter do.

there is method to my comments, I have been doing this a while.... not trying to be "snippy", but the airfilter controls a lot more than most people realize on this bike. IMHO it's marginal for its longevity, and needs regimented, and regular attention to make the bike run right.

So Please, take this from someone who HAS done their own service, in timely manners, and has been inside of the "plastic wayyyy to many times to count".  Again, if you have not actually "done" the work, it's a bit hard to swallow advice on what may "seem" to be the issue... kinda like playing the blues, without paying the dues. :rotflmao:

Oh, and PLEASE, refrain from dumping chemicals into the fuel.. it NEVER helps diagnose, or correct an issue, it just masks underlying issues for a tank of fuel.. bump the cold speed idle up to 1100rpm, at startup, via the adjuster knob;  it will drop back once warm... Insure clean fresh fuel, and a clean air filter.. and run from there.

Yep, done already.  Still idles lower and splutters on light throttle when cold.

That is not a good sign.  The C14 is notoriously good at idling and not acting up with throttle when cold.  My was fine for 8 years and then starting having issues- all due to valve lash.  I had never even TOUCHED the idle speed adjuster before then (didn't even know it was there).  Did he provide proof/maintenance records that the valve inspection was done?  Maybe a dealer that you can contact?  Might also want to run a few tanks of Techron additive through it just for giggles, but don't expect some miracle (unless the injectors are really fouled).  Clogged air filter could contribute, although that might show more on high rpm (like a clogged fuel filter would show on higher throttle and RPM).

I believe dying/sputtering and such on too much throttle (especially when cold, but otherwise to some extent, too) is primarily an fuel/air mix/combustion issue (too rich/lean, contaminated with exhaust, etc).  If your gas is good, and the injectors are clean, it is most likely the valves :(

gonna go out on the limb again, and suggest pulling that air filter out, for inspection and replacement if needed...

Search online for the HiFlo brand, it will save big $$ and works as good as OEM

Just as good as Season 1.

Even without the flash from Shoodaben Engineering, it never did that.  Never did it with the flash either.  Smoothest idling machine I've ever owned.  Mine was an early model bought in Aug of 2007.

Brings tears to my eyes, it does, to see all those English/UK flags on our site.

There's another site you should look at as well.   http://gtr1400.co.uk  Bunch of fine people over there.

Based on all the anecdotal evidence here, I did some research and found out that my Samsung TV will work with Disney + app.  Just installed and signed up.  Went into the first 5 minutes of the Mandalorian and decided this could be quite good.  Also lots of other good stuff on Disney +.

Set the idle about 1100 or so when warm...

Yep, done already.  Still idles lower and splutters on light throttle when cold.
