I think if it were mine I would just take it off , to get a better look at it .most likley it just has a bit of corrotion or dirt in it making it stuck .take it apart and clean it .
Thanks very much tweav. I spoke to a yamaha tech about this and he said much the same thing. He reckoned it was either internal carb corrosion or varnish from stale fuel. Im slightly miffed that this has happened. I'll try cleaning the part and swapping the fuel out for fresh and will add a fuel stabiliser.
Thanks for your time.
