    Hello Mike
    When you first started the bike at home to go for your ride you said the tick over was a bit unstable, did you by any chance turn in the tick over screw to increase it? If you did this could be the cause of your problem; if the slide is slightly too high some MZs can tick over reliably, but if the throttle is blipped the revs stay high and don’t come down when the throttle is shut. I believe this is caused by the increased revs drawing more air under the slide, increasing but weakening the pilot mixture, a weak mixture will cause the engine to race and a cycle begins; more air more revs, more revs more air…

    Hello again Gordon
    I hope you have managed to remove the pin from your crank, but, if you have trouble, I have found I have a spare one if you are stuck.

    Hello Gordon
    A good way to grip something round like the pin in the crank is with a drill chuck. There may not be enough protruding, and smaller chucks with small jaws with a pronounced taper will give better access. I have an old chuck saved from a scrap drill that I use. I have removed more than one of these pins in the past and have not found them to be very tight. A little gentle wiggling and twisting while looking closely at the pin with a magnifier to see if it is moving should also help.
