    Lightbulb Help ! None Starter !

    I used my Tornado yesterday to come to work on and all was fine, tucked her in the garage as per usual, no probs. !

    Got her out this morning to come to work, all kitted in my leathers, (God I Love Leather ! ahem ! ) erm, turned my alarm off, inserted the ignition key and "hey presto".............. Nothing, Now't, Zilch ! There was not an ounce of life in the clocks, the ignition, nothing ! I checked to make sure the "kill" switch was in the correct position and that was fine, the side lights would come on but nothing else. I checked the battery voltage and that's reading 12.75 volts, so I assume thats fine !

    I have a Gemel/Meta alarm which I will find the destruction manual out for tonight and check any possible faults known with that.

    Angus has mentioned a couple of things to test, relays, side stand switch etc, which I will do tonight ! But other than that, any ideas guys ?

    Any help or suggestions would be welcome ! Normally I'd ask my mate Alan (he's family, married to my niece !) to have a look but my niece has started asking "whats wrong with the bike today", even when I pop round just for a social visit !

    aaaaah, the wonders of Italian bikes, don't you just Love them !




    now then, did Rusty Russ say he was going to sell Honda's again !

    Yep rob like I said earlier check gear (neutral) switch as well as if the bike thinks its in gear that will cause problem as mentioned . Seeing as alarms bleeping it to me puts that working as required.last thing before you stopped it would of been moving gear lever into neutral so hence why I said check that. Good luck
    All ways at the end of phone.

    if the bike is in neutral, and the clutch is in then I would hazard a guess that theres not enough left in the battery.
    Try some jump leads or put it on charge overnight. _ my Moto Morini Corsaro did this to me before the Nellie

    Thanks for the help guys.......... both of you !



    I've messed about with the relays making sure they are seated correctly and then I've messed about with the side stand/switch and now the bike is fine again, So I'm guessing it's the side stand switch, I've WD-40'd it and cleaned it up so hopefully all is now well !


    Party on !

    Hopefully now I can do a nice run to Swadlincote bike meet near Bridgnorth tomorrow evening now !

    Come on, own up, you left it in gear

    Can you request your rttw post be made a sticky?
    Are we looking to have a Nelli ride in to the rttw?
    I like to think I'm an optimist.

    I like your style ! If enough peeps on Benelli's go to the RTTW then it sounds good to me !
