Press starter, whizzzz, no turneee...
Off to the Bike Show in DC this morning......get on and press the starter...it responds with a healthy, gentle "whizzzzzzzzz" but doesn't catch and turn the motor. Its like nothing I've heard before. Not a flat battery (I know THAT sound), not starter relay (its the new model and it switches off/on with the starter button OK)...I suspect its something in the starter itself where its turning, but not engaging the flywheel (or whatever it engages to start turning the actual motor).
Any ideas? Sprag clutch...but why would it fail with no warning ever before. It has sat unturned for 6 weeks.
