Those of you who have poor starting and think "well those injectors were
replaced a while back" might want to reconsider.  Replaced the injectors
in my wife's MC motor, these were all of three years old (50K miles) and
starting is back to normal.  I suspect the newer Bosch injectors just
don't last like the originals.

I also found the source of the muck on the side of the motor.  The stud
on no. 5 exhaust manifold had backed out about 5mm.  New gaskets all
round and the MC is running sweetly.
