    Heyarrr!

    anybody in Whanganui with a pattery pack, jumped cables or something?

    I stopped to put a jacket on and now the bike won’t start. Clicks but that’s it.

    I’ll start peeling off the gear now to pull out the seat, tank and such...

    Tried to bumpstart it and ended up at the corner of Smithfield Rd and Selwyn Cres

    If it hasn't showed symptoms of a bad battery previously, maybe it's just a bad connection to the battery or the earth strap..

    Cheers! All sorted now. Have no idea what it was, but I pulled out a connector at the startermotor, put it back in and it started!

    All the battery related connectors (and my add on grounds) are nice and tight.
