Hi Guys, Well I've upgraded and its been going well. Went for a nice hard ride in the mountains today with a mate and half way through it my bike starts playing up. It starts cutting out and dieing (like it wasnt getting enough fuel), then it would come good for a moment but as soon as I let the rev's drop below 5000 rpm it would cut out. Pulled over and checked it out. It wouldnt start now, it was making the infamous no charge in the battery clicking noise. How would this be possible I was thinking. Took the seat off and the negative battery terminal was loose. Did it up. Checked all the fuses, all were fine except 1 which was somewhat out and had oxidization on it. Roll started it, it idled there happily for a while till I put my gear back on. Gave it the usual couple of rev's and it was feeling like the same problem dieing off. Took off and only got so far down the road before some fellow bikers came out and offerred me to leave it at their place (i know sounds dodgie but they were nice.. owned there own houses and owned several bikes worth far far more than mine). Now the fuel tap only works on reserve so I'm thinking there could be a problem with the fuel system or maybe the charging system but I'm not sure. I have to pick the bike up somehow tomorrow (which I'm not sure how I'm going to do but yeah it always works out) so any suggestions on what it could be would be welcome. Another question.. could it be a vacuum problem? The bike was running fine till a week ago when I noticed a hiccup at 7500 rpm. Sorry for the long post.. thanks in advanced. Cheers, Troy.
