Thanks H96669. Can you explain why trying to start the bike on a low battery is bad for it? I would have just thought that if it doesn't have enough power to start, there's no bad side effect other than it won't start?
Also a bit confused about jumpstarting, from say a car, a bike with a low battery. Why isn't this a safe thing to do? Surely its the same principle of jump starting a car from another car? I think I must have reversed the leads when I tried to jump start it, which obviously is bad but other guys I know with bikes have said they've often jumpstarted their bike from a car no problem. Same info on web. Is there something different about the K75 in this regard?
