CLick for Rules for Roadside Assist Section

STRICT RULES & INFORMATION FOR THIS SECTION:

WARNING: This is not a general discussion section. This section is reserved expressly for post started by those people in need of IMMEDIATE breakdown assistance. Please do not START a thread in here unless you need assistance. Any registered user may RESPOND to a thread started by the person who needs assistance, but no banter please, keep this strictly on topic so valid communications can be easily referenced.

This is not an accident or injury response section. If you have had an accident and are injured, please call 000 for assistance.

If you need breakdown assistance support from a PSB volunteer, please do as follows:

1) Ensure you and your bike are in a safe location to prevent exposure to damage and personal injury. If you are injured and need medical assistance, contact 000.
2) Create a new post in this section with the subject titled “Help Wanted – Suburb”.
3) In the body of the post please put as much detail as you are able including but not limited to:

(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”.
(c) Provide details of where you and/or bike need transport to.
(d) Provide your mobile telephone number if available.

If you don’t have a phone that has internet access to make the above post then contact someone who does have internet access and they can create a post for you.

If you are able, continue to monitor this thread for updates and responses.

What will happen now:

1) When you create a thread in this section an email is sent to all regsitered PSB volunteers automatically. It will also be monitored by those using the forum at the time.
2) They will visit this thread for details, and if able to respond will make a post accordingly.
3) If you have provided your mobile number, the respondent will likely make contact with you to let you know they are on their way and provide an ETA.

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.

If you have a bike trailer or other facilities that could assist PSB Members who have broken down, and would like to register as a PSB Assist member, please email [email protected] from the email address you would like on the register so that you can be added.

  • Battery charger/jump start needed

    I've been an idiot and turned the key one too many notches. Now the battery is completely flat so i'll need a boost to get her going again.
    Anyone near Vic Park that can lend me a charger/jumper for a couple of hours?


    Cheers,
    Rane

    Rane, I'm in Bentley - and I'm home. Come and grab my charger if you want. But do so at your own risk- I'm in quarantine cos I contracted man flu off a male, so it's serious :/ I kid, I've had it a few days now so think you're safe from catching it.

          Tried push starting

          Running next to the bike with the clutch pulled in get some speed up, dump the clutch and hit the starter almost at the same time, when it fires up pull the clutch back in quickly.

                  when push starting, does pushing the starter button help even if the batt is flat as a tack?

                    I've seen people do it but never bothered out of worry about the impact on the starter.

                    Just put it in second, make sure the ignition is on, push your guts out, slam your arse on the seat and drop the clutch at the same time.

                      Your providing the spark/power to injector, as long as the battery isn't completely flat it will fire up.
