Re: Ignition buzzing but no turnover - Serviced 7/10/2017

Hi all, Picked my bike up this morning after a 30k service, rode it home no problems, went to start it a couple of hours later, the dash lights up, but when I hit the ignition button, there's a loud buzzing, the dash turs off & restarts but the starter motor won't kick over. What are your thoug...

Re: fuel

Adjusting the fuel sender doesn't have any impact on your fuel economy, only your right hand and favourable wind conditions do that :) Correct but maybe adjusting the fuel sender makes the computer give out incorrect info, maybe?

I'm thinking of tapping it out so I can fit a RAM mount ball. If it's the hole that you could fit a mirror into like a naked bike then it is ...
