Thanks Jim for the offer.
So far I have been very pleased with my decision to buy this bike. Although it may get a few raspberries from the 'racerboy' types as heavy and slow, it serves my purpose well. I am an ordinary guy who just wants to ride through the mountains on a sunny day and enjoy the road safely. But back to my question...
Just this morning I went to start up my bike, turned the key, and nothing! No dash lights, nothing.. I tried to jump start it but was unsuccessful. (It must have been quite a sight for the neighbours as my wife was helping push in her pj's and running shoes
). I was stumped as the bike has started effortlessly every day for the last 3 weeks when it came out of winter hibernation.
I took the battery to the shop and the tech put it on a trickle changer for the night, but felt the battery is probably shot as the water levels were down past the low mark. Whats your guess? Battery? or could it be just a loose connection somewhere? Maybe both? If a battery gets a little low on water is it typically fatal?
A few more quick questions Jim, What is the capacity of the fuel tank? How big is the reserve?
There are dials on the top of the fork tubes with a 1-2-3. What is this, suspension adjustments? What should they be set to?
Thanks Jim, and everyone else for your input....
