Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Post by Mike246 on Thu 01 Sep 2016, 9:00 pm

Hi gents could you help please right here we go I have changed the battery and reficter after the bike would not charge the bits turned up today I fitted them took it out for a run it was ok 

Now I decide to take it to work with me it was fine until it had a loss of power then it shut down could not be restarted but it sounded like the noise when the starter motor turning but not cranking pushed it half way home and I tried it it fired so I rode it home once I got home it shutdown again any ideas

Check the coils/spark and the connectors to it, these can be easily found under the side stand side rad cowl. Check them for any corrosion.

Was the starter motor turning (whirring noise) but not engaging with the engine? Or was it just that the starter wasn't turning at all?
