Hi Guys,

Having a few issues with my own little beastie, she doesnt seem to want to tick over, have check spark and ground but she just doesnt want to go, battery is all good cause all lights a fine.

when using the electric start she just does the whole nying nying type noise (best shot at spelling a noise) with throttle.

And kicking isnt easy but sometimes sound like she wants to go when i do, i wondering if its just the cold but i just spent half an hour kicking and trying the electric start and she still not starting, if anyone has some suggestions that would be great.

i am in the barmy warmth of London (fucking freezing) and unfortunately i dont own a garage so my best bet is cold as it only started happening about 2 days before christmas but as its my commuting transport would like to get the girl up and running again.

Cheers lads.

Beelzebub.

Hey there, when new my bike was pretty feeble at starting and always took a few turns with the stock plug. When I changed to iridium it would jump into life better. Are you running an iridium plug? Stock? It might help to upgrade to a stronger spark

All sorted, when I was putting the new front controls I stripped everything and put in a new battery. Seems the battery was weak and there was some corrosion around the positive terminal...new battery and a quick clean up and she's starting first time every time.
