Get rid of that hex key sump plug and purchase a regular hex head and use a spanner. Well worth the 35 bucks US. I was a gnats ass away from stripping it.
Please thank Mr Bodycoat below? (brilliant) i believe he may be the one and the same whom gave me the part number and advise, via FB. Apologies i didn't know you were also part of this community. Invaluable.Guys!! I have some great news....
After I read P-rogers's last post I thought I would try changing the sensor on my bike. His bike is the same model and of very similar age displaying similar symptoms, it had to worth a try.
I decide to be thrifty by a used MAP Yamaha sensor 1WS-82380-00, figuring if the Yamaha wasn't scrapped because it didn't run properly the MAP sensor should be good... I found one on EBay from a 2017 Yamaha XSR700 £23 posted..
I fitted it and I was so pleased with the result! Totally change my bike, just like P-rogers's. It starts well and idles, initially at 1.5 the drop to 1.2 when warm (it did that anyway). It revs well through the lower rev range which I had issues with all the way up to my current limit of 4.5 and slightly beyond.... I can overtake now without fearing for my life! So so much better. It still stalls at the first couple of junctions but when warmed up it seems fine.. it's now a rideable machine. I am back in love with it..
Just an slightly annoying vibration about 4 to 4.5..
Here are my plugs now, remember how black they were before..
Thanks to everyone for their help, it's very much appreciated.
Vernon 240 You were correct.

I have thanked him personally, I've also booked my bike in with him for it's first service. Seems a knowledgeable man who likes the bike. Can't wait to get her back on the road..Please thank Mr Bodycoat below? (brilliant) i believe he may be the one and the same whom gave me the part number and advise, via FB.

As you have noted, its changed my bike so much and confidence again through the rev range. it does sometimes cut out slowing down when cold first up, drop the clutch and all good as im going through the gear box anyway. but works so much better. correct it has the green square on it. We're still in lock-down here in Sydney, so haven't been able to get out and have a proper ride and fully check out the rev range etc.
