Push the start button but nothing?
« on: August 18, 2019, 07:40:56 pm »
Hi guys, I've just got back after a 1 year gap from my bike, battery been kept on c-tek charger so its good, when connected and I push the started button all I hear is a clicking sound coming from the lower left hand side. All lights work, indicators etc, motor just doesn't turn. Any suggestions??

I would connect a volt metre to the battery and see if there is a voltage drop under load when attempting to start the motor.
