(a) A good description of your actual location including street name, direction, nearest cross street, or any other information that you feel would be of assistance for someone trying to find you.
(b) Details on what the issue and the kind of assistance you need. EG: “Bike broken down, both bike and I require movement to Victoria Park”.

NOTE: This is not an accident response thread, meaning to say, if you have had an accident and you are injured, please contact 000 and ask for an Ambulance. This section is to respond to non life threatening or injury situations.

For the avoidance of doubt (and stupidity) do not post in this section if you are wanting help moving your bike somewhere were it does not relate to assistance required for an immediate breakdown need.

  • Help - bike stopped working mid-ride, oil light on

    Hi guys, I was riding along Scarborough beach road when my oil light came on and the engine just sort of petered out! I can't see anything that could be wrong from a general inspection. My partner is at work so I'm a bit stuck. Is there anything I could try or look at to get it going? I may or may not need a trailer, I have to wait for a call to see if my partner van get off work.

    Balls

    Please help!

        No fuel light on the bike, but its got fuel plus I switched to reserve to see if that worked.. I *think* it came on as it happened or just before. It's not a very conspicuous light but I think I would have noticed had it been on

            Are you able to get the bike as near to vertical as possible and check the oil sight glass to check level?

            Also possibly remove oil cap and smell for burnt oil which may indicate low/no oil?

            Stuck at Welshpool so unfortunately can only offer keyboard assistance.

              You say it 'petered out' did it struggle to roll to a stop in gear? needed clutch to roll?
              Check the dip stick.. does the starter motor crank or does it just click? May have run it dry of oil?

                  Oil is fine, checked dipstick... and it can roll without tec clutch in neutral... when I press start button she sounds like she wants to go but then nothing. Sorry for my vague descriptions, I'm mechanically challenged. Man I'm annoyed

                  Edit: starter motor does crank, it doesn't click. Boyfriend is on his way, he knows a bit but have a feeling ill need a tow - will definitely pay for services rendered in cash or beer etc... will keep you updated, thanks for suggestions everyone.

                    Starter turning over is a good sign.

                          Hey guys, thanks for all you're offers - thank GOD my boyfriend got her going... he fiddled with spark plugs and coils for a bit and she started tentatively. You're all amazing for offering help!

                            Dejavu, you are a life saver! Thanks so much for getting the bike going - not a hiccup all the way home. Will check her more thoroughly this weekend though, probably will be investing in some new spark plugs methinks!

                              No Probs Courtney, nice to meet youse btw.

                              Its always better being able to get it going and ride home than load it up and make it a problem for another day, when you've forgotten what the symptoms were and what you've already played with.

                              If she due for a service then make it happen, other than that, fill it up and ride that bike.
