    CBD breakdown

    Hey. Not sure if flat battery or more sinister. Bike not starting...one or two turns on the starter then nothing. Any advice/help appreciated.

    Are the lights bright ... or dim when you turn the key to on..?

    Do they fade out when you hit the starter..? ( use a wall or window if no one is around to spot for you.)

    You with RAC..? Or near a battery world...Etc..bike shop..?

    This is what I did to get mine running with a flat battery... ironically I was on my way to battery world to get a new one

    Put it in second, clutch in. Run like tits, then drop the clutch and hit the starter at the same time... hopefully enough to turn it over. I had to go a couple of times as the rear wheel would skid from compression. (dont forget to pull the clutch as soon as it starts firing, don't want it riding away from you!)

    If you're confident enough (which I wasn't), you can jump on the bike when you're up to speed and drop clutch/hit start as you land on the pegs (to add traction to the rear)

    Thanks guys. Couldn't check if lights were dimming...push started easily enough in 3rd. I used to be good at running and jumping on when I had an old xs650 - got lots of practise haaha!
