    Hi All,

    anyone had this problem when starting the bike ?
    I have checked my battery and it's fine, but can't start the bike.
    The message is "starter motor disabled" on the dashboard.

    Thanks for any help !

    I dont know much about newer bikes but
    I assume bike is in neutral ( on my bike, clutch pulled?) and you haven't hit the engine kill button.
    When you say the battery is fine have you tried another battery, what are the readings? Should be about 12.6 v static and if it drops below 12v when you press the starter button there is a cut out that stops the bike starting. Cold weather can kill a healthy looking battery, may just need a charge.
    Have you tried putting the bike in gear and moving it slightly, may free the starter off?

    Thanks Sprintdave, yes bike in neutral, clutch pulled, kill and starter button are the same in this model so no way to switch off when starting. I have checked the battery, it's a Lithium-Ion one and the voltage is 13.1 so it's ok. Have also tried putting the bike in gear but this didn't help.
    Any other idea ?
