Hi all,

Riding along along all ok and the bike cuts out put more fuel in as was a little low but when I try to start it turns over a pop comes out the exhaust that's it, could it be a coil?

Cheers

Well recently twice it wouldn't start first time and I had to switch off and on to start and when revved it it would rev then drop to almost stalling by not and go back to idle, also it surged a few times in 3/4th at about 40 which it never did before, also has been vibbing from where the timing chain is.

Don't laugh but this happened to me. Could not start bike and was hauled to dealer. They installed new battery voila fixed. Funny because I also battery tend and all was running fine. Shop tech said 3 years max on batteries or it will leave you stranded. I was running fine came to stop light pulled in clutch she died and would not restart. Hope you fix your problem.
