No solutions

19th April 2017 by  in The Dex Files

The mystery of the non-starting Kawasaki 1400GTR. I’m no closer to solving it. After it let itself (and me) on Monday morning, I attached it to a trickle charger. Got home and it started like a lamb. (Do lambs have electric starters?)

Tuesday morning; dead again. Charged: started.

This morning; absolutely fine.

So I have no idea what the problem is. I took most of the bodywork off last night to see if I could spot anything obvious, but the loom is so well chased through the frame, all neatly wrapped and cable-tied, that it’d be nigh-on impossible to spot a problem unless you already knew where to look. To be honest, it also looks so well put together that it should be nigh-on impossible for it to get a chafe or fray.

Something’s killing the battery, though. I’ll have to find out what. I might even have to <takes a deep breath> ask my dealer to help identify the problem.

But surely I can figure it out for myself.
