Re: engine won't start
I had a look, but by jesus that bugger is well in the gizzards of the bike, side plate off foot rest off and you can just about give it a poke with a along screwdriver, to replace the thing would be a strip down.
Something I am not prepared to do by the side of the road inches from passing trams, it would not be too bad if there was not a steady stream of people passing by.
Old guys no1 till 7: "I remember having a bike that did not start"
Old guys no7 till 12: "Something wrong, can I help?"
A gaggle of clueless, staring nose picking kids...: "???????????????????"
Old guys no12 till 20: "Is it not working?"

I took the battery off and reconnected, Tadah! A green light on the dash....!
I put everything back together, suited up jumped on and..... NOTHING!
Now back in my under-the-roof-pokey-hole licking my wounded pride.
Without men civilization would last untill the oil needs changing.
