Bah, breakdown

This is what I get for not wiring my heated grips into the ignition. Forgot to turn them off and now battery is dead. Going to take ages for breakdown man.

Do tell

Do I turn ignition on, push push push and then release clutch whilst in gear? I'm pretty crippled and there's no hill.

yeah mate

stick it in 2nd of 3rd gear, ignition on, clutch in push bike along, release clutch, get ready engage clutch again as engine starts. :smile

If you don't engage the clutch when the engine starts the bike will fook off without you, leaving you in an embarrassed  heap in the middle of the road :biggrin:

These

Have the failsafe but it obviously let it go too low. Looks like I'm waiting there's only the elderly around to help and the pain gets too bad if I push it any faster. Not even a peep out of the engine, it just stops when I release clutch.
