All Technical Issues / won't start
« on: November 09, 2017, 05:17:45 AM »
Ok, so i have left my bike sitting over the winter. Did a bit of maintenance before starting it, oil, battery and fluids etc. Went for a short ride, just a 10-15km or so, came home with no dramas.
I went to start it today, and no love for me.

It doesn't crank at all. but the starter relay fires. there's 12.7v in the battery and around 11 under load. All electrics look okay, lights, dash etc, all good. however for some reason gear selection is completely stuffed. I can find first, then back to neutral, then second, no further change up, then back to neutral, and no first.
Rocking the bike in gear loosens the gear selection and first is okay, then upwards selection is out of whack.

Has anyone else ever heard of anything like this?

I did notice last season when riding i missed a gear change 5-6, which i thought was odd at the time, as it has never missed a beat before this, but only happened once and seemed okay from then on.

Kinda hoping this is not transmission, as I am no mechanic, and wifey doesn't see the need for a workshop bill....I do have a donor bike, so have changed out the starter relay, no luck though.

Starter motor??????

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated, i mean the weather is just starting to come right, and i don't want to miss out this year..

Hi All,
I finally managed to get hold of a fantastic '88 Hurricane, and have enjoy months of happy riding. I remember when the 600 came out brand new, and as a youngster I thought 'one day....'. Well it's a lot of years later and the day finally arrived.
My bike seems to have had a couple of scrapes in it's life, however it still turns heads....I look forward to many years of happy riding ahead.
