Thats really good that its running well, I have to admit I didnt think a addative would have helped but there you go. It does look like the problem was valves. Whatever it was at least now you can enjoy your bike. Good outcome.

Congratulations, looks and sounds like she's running properly now.
I guess those additives aren't as useless as I thought...  *smile*

Give here some time to run in and then try without that stuff. I suppose it should be okay once whatever has caused the problem has made a good number of working strokes and has bedded in.

Nothing wrong there. Sounds perfect.
I have used an additive called Nulon for 30 years in everything. I swear by it.

Oh thanks but being type 2 means moderation in all things, maybe just chocolate and ten and hundreds

Well done Andy - sounds great. What a result - first time I have heard of an instant fix with addatives. Just goes to show that some of them "do what it says on the tin".
BTW I hope that was not Officer Dibble with a radar gun in that yellow and red stripy van on your video? *whistle*
