I'm hoping someone can throw some ideas my way. I don't know much about the mechanics of a bike, but it's time to learn. I have a 2008 CRF230L, only about 9XX miles on it (some of those are pretty hard miles in some tough/rocky terrain, so the bike has been dropped a lot at speeds up to 25mph - I say that just in case it might have something to do with diagnosing the problem). I was riding the other morning and suddenly the bike lost power. It didn't die immediately. When I hit the throttle nothing happened. So I kept downshifting as the bike went slower, and finally in first gear it died and we came to a stop. The battery seemed fine - horn works fine, blinkers, lights, etc.. No sign of any problem there. When I hit the starter - nothing. Nothing at all, not even a single turn over. No clicking noise, either. I took the panels off to get to the battery just to make sure that wasn't it - cables were tight. There was some fuse above the battery; I pulled out the plastic piece that contained it and checked the fuse, it was fine. Still wouldn't start. Put everything back together. Was about ready to push it home (I was about 2 miles from house). Gave it one last whirl. Fired right up, and no problems since. Rode it 250 miles that day. It's working fine now, but obviously there is a problem brewing somewhere. I want to know what it might be in case this happens again so that I am prepared and not left stranded. Any ideas on what happened?
