help vt250f

  1. my sister inlaw has a vt250f. it wont start on the startermotor but it will start piss easy when you push start it. (fast earning a nickname as the pushbike)
    we have done
    new battery
    had the starter checked by an auto elec
    what else do you check with something like this?
    ps we dont have a workshop manual

  2. loose connections, coils, leads.

    The battery might have enough juice to crank the motor, but it also has to brovide a reasonable voltage to the coils to enable a significant enough jump in voltage to facilitate a spark. Shounds like the bike can't do two things at once.

    Try using the indicator while cranking, give us further cues aobut the state of the charging system
