    Hey Everyone,

    Ever since the weathers turned I've had problems starting my bike. Ignition on, bike in neutral, kickstand up and clutch in, but the starter motor just does nothing (or has a bit of life but not enough to start the bike) HOWEVER it will eventually randomly kick into life.

    It seems to be extremely intermittent, sometimes will start up fine, other days will take a few minutes for it to eventually start up.

    Any help would be muchly appreciated

    Dirty contact in the switch block ? Had similar symptoms on a 94 Trident , when it was 4yrs old , and my 09 America did it too ! The contact's can look clean , but an invisible film forms and it makes starting intermittent.

    cheers capt

    He has not been on the forum for six weeks, so possibly, yes.
