It will maybe be a silly thing like

2 - pick up got pulse ?
3 - eletric plugs on the right way ?
4 - checked fuses ?
5 - to cold and wants to stay home ? hahahhahaa

Cheers Trev

To close this out, it was a bad connection on the crank sensor....
It sits inside the LH frame rail.
Sorted.

Cheers JRH....I'll check this out on mine as its due back on the road this year....Is it an earth tag to frame or on the motor itself?


How did your high temp lacquer stand up after you polished up your jolly moto mild steel pipes? Has it kept corrosion at bay and stayed intact?....Thats on my list this year also...I have some 800 degree Celsius lacquer that sprays nice...but needs to be baked at 160 Celsius for 30-60 mins to harden....More kitchen time ahead "baking parts"...
