You sure the battery is good? Make sure all your battery connections are good and tight, then try and jump it, have you looked at the starter relay electrics etc, under the right hand tank (whilst sat on the bike) common problem area!
I may be talking crap here but I was told that its amps that are needed to start the engine rather than volts, ie the battery may show good voltage but may not be holding the ampreage.
Is this correct.
Yep need a good battery with at least 120/130 cca but needs to be in good nick, as them are big pistons to move! And once it's start going its not got to turn her over and you then the click of death!! Mine was great after an evening on the optimate. But left outside work all day in sub zero conditions then it would just turn over and start, new battery in and would spin up like a spring chicken!
Stop press!!! Cal Crutchlow just got 2nd in qualifying great result that, Valy 7th
