Thanks Dave,
Found it is available in Aust. cost $45 including delivery.(ouch)It arrived yesterday, I will not be fitting it for a while.
Interesting the instruction on your link describes how to know if you need a bigger pilot jet. So that answered that question.

I adjusted the idle mixture screw from the 1-5/8 turns to 2 turns & finally got to take it for a ride last weekend. Hesitation pretty much gone.
Damocles - correction to my previously incorrect description. Problem was around 1/8 throttle just over 2000 rpm.

Unfortunately it looks like no more riding for me this year as I grabbed too much frt brake ( stupid error / bad technique) hit the bitumen hard & dislocated my shoulder.
