Hi all, i have an 01 shadow with 105,000 on the clock... serviced regularly (every 5k.. previous owner was bike mech as well that was fussy) Now i have an issue when firing it up, in neutral hitting the starter and sometimes it will fire perfectly fine, others it wont start at all.. it sounds like the starter turns over for a split second and stops or nothing at all. sometimes it seems like a ever so slight move of the throttle while hitting the starter will get it up other times it makes no diff. (headlight dims/goes out when i hit the button as per norm) second problem iam unsure if related or not but iam guessing so.. i bump started to get home from work the other night.. bike was running fine cruising along the motorway home then suddenly the headlight clicked out. (10:30pm not a cool thing to happen) it came back on about 5 seconds later but then approx 1km further down the road the bike literally died it sounded like the motor was still running but no power.... i was sitting on about 120kmph and i realised the engine was winding down.. a pull on the throttle and nothing.. i began to pull over to the side of the motorway when it sounded like the motor finally died. electrics were all working.. headlight went out again and came back on after randomly flicking switches ect while testing everything. click of the starter... nothing... zip.. this is when the cursing began. i began pushing the bike and randomly pushing the starter here and there in hopes it would kick up... after about a k push it fired and got me home with no further issues (about ten more mins) iam going to duck to supercheap in the morning and grab a multimeter to check battery voltage.. so ill come back with the readings for that tommorow. any clues/suggestions/previous encounters of the problem?
