It sounds like it was stored with fuel long enough to cause the some gumming. Since it is running now, try to
run a decent PEA based fuel system cleaner like BG 44k through the engine, it should help dissolve any deposits.

Sounds like the new battery was bad luck. AGM batteries are much more robust in terms of vibration. The acid
is held in a glass matt rather than liquid. There is also the option of lithium nowadays but they can be temperamental
in cold weather. Also check the earths. It is common for these to develop resistance as they corrode over the years.

You may be better off with an enclosed air box. I am not sure what the ambient temperatures are where you live but
it must be colder than most on here.

Been testriding small trips, still a bit worried about the oil leak from clutch cable, haven't had time to fix this yet. But so far so good. Seems like the bike is working well. The bike started to idle very high when it got hot, but did a TPS reset when engine temp was +150 C, and now it idles very nice both cold and hot.
Hopefully summer will come soon so i can start to use it a bit more. But as i said, seems like it's starting to work well.

As for the ambient temperature, we are talking a steady 16 degrees C average in the summer. That's 60 degree Fahrenheit.

Aaaaalrighty then!
Got some miles on my bike, all seems good.
Between 2.000-3.500 rpm, when i'm holding a certain speed limit, the bike sputts a bit. But if i give it full throttle it runs OK, so maybe those famous intake gaskets should have been changed, will test the spray startgas around intake seals trick. Also i have this Forcewinder open air filter mounted, and there is a bad gasket there. I have got the air box and will mount that when i have ordered the screws, gaskets and a couple of small items i need. But for daily rides it works fine.
So, hopefully it will run smoother after i put on air box, if that doesn't do it i will take a look on intake gaskets.

You should check your charging sistem. It should have around 13.5V to 14.5V when running...

Charging system is OK. I read voltage value in ECMspy, but when i meassure with voltmeter on the battery it reads closer to 14V.
