Thanks Guys for the info on the sticky first gear oil change fixed that and runs as smooth as silk.. now for another issue
i tried to start it... ignition key ON.. speed O flicked all the way to the right... then everything went dead... no juice, no lights... just like the cutoff switch was OFF, but it was ON and ignition key was ON. I removed the battery and checked it... its fine, put it back.. same
So now im looking at a dead bike .. almost looks like the cut off switch is broken .. but that sounds a bit too far fetched.
Has anyone experienced the same thing?
