They said it was something to do with the sprag? I am expecting it to be delivered any minute now. Still under warranty so hopefully all is well but it was suggested that a weak battery might be the culprit.

Looks well tidy not my choice of crashbars but anything is better than nothing.

 :>< very smart, time to  :wheel enjoy and we'll hear about the post mortem in due course. If the engine bolts haven't been disturbed the sprag hasn't been touched and if it's a new battery (as Bixxer says these issues often are) :thumbsup bonus. Get out while it's dry  :wave
I used to have long hair, took acid and went to hip joints. Now I long for hair, take antacid and need a new hip joint

Nice bike.
I can vouch for the crashbars being of exceptional strength and build quality with excellent protection.
I know you are curious as to how I know.........It was due to an unexpected appointment at 04:00hrs at 60ish mph on a blind corner T boning a stray horse!
