???

Very interesting indeed, may I ask how you got hold of this " internal " document as I've not had any response from Benelli at all.

Hot starting......not

Ummmm, I think maybe the starter motor lay shaft may have a twist in it which is causing the same problem that the excessive loctite was causing; stay tuned, we have our new Technical Manager 'Trevor' on the job.
