  • Starting/running problem...

    Had starting problems where bike fires, funs for a few seconds then cuts out again. Then battery died, no good even after recharging. New battery, same issue... Fires, runs for a v short time, then cuts out again.
    YES, it DOES have fuel.
    Any suggestions while I try and organise a day off work monday and a trailer?
    And today's such a gorgeous day for riding

        1, Always look good
        2, Always know what you're doing
        3, In failure of step 2 refer to step one

          In this case yes... but i swear the guys are usually far more temperamental

            let me guess...you were riding another bike on the side weren't you?

              Some say he eats sidchrome for breakfast

              Some say he only showers on even days of the week

              Some say he put an R1 motor in a coffee machine

              All we know is he's Hewie.

                      Good point *notes to pick up a fuel tin*
                      I'm sure I can manage to handle that one...

                        might also be worth unscrewing the fuel tap assembly from the tank and make sure the straining gauze is also clean........

                        oh yeah, drain ya tank first!
                        ...having dinner with KARMA tonight...
