Will not start?
Background bike has been running fine all summer, last week I try to start her and nothing? It has lights, kickstand is up and its in neutral. Pressed the ignition and nothing at all - no noises. I play around with the spark plug, kickstand and change gears back to neutral, still nothing. 20 mins later of repeating the same trouble shooting it randomly starts up. I shutdown after going for a quick ride and the same thing happens again? nothing from the ignition switch? I just got the battery check out 12.4v - 75% left, 201cca out of 300.I dont know how it could be a battery issue when it will turn over randomly/eventually?
I know if the kickstand is down its not suppose to turn over but is there any other reason? I will charge the battery and try again next weekend but Im interested in knowing all the preliminary reasons a 2001 will not start?
