long time no speak, I hope you are all well and loving your bikes!
I have three issues to ask about, I hope that someone can help.
I have been using the bike less and less due to having a child, and sometimes it can sit for quite a while without being used.
1 )I now have some kind of starter issue .Basically, when I used to constantly use the bike all the time I could just start her with the starter button , no revs needed. After a lot of sitting idle, it now wont just start - rather it cuts out if I just hit the button. I have to give it a quick blip on the throttle for her to then idle ok.
2) An intermittent issue but seems quite a biggy when it happens. Basically I will open the throttle to accelerate , but the bike won't accelerate , just stays at the speed I am doing. The more I open the throttle, the less the bike wants to go and seem to even slow a little. This has happened 3-4 times. At first I thought clutch. She was serviced in January and the mechanic says the clutch is ok. Since the service it has happened twice more. Last night being one. It goes on for a minute or so and then the bike goes back to normal.
It's a scary one, since one day I might need that acceleration and I don't want to think of me opening her up and nothing happening.
3) This is probably the most minor issue. There is a metallic rattle coming from the exhaust (I think) . Mechanic tells me that sometimes the exhaust comes loose from it's housing and that is the problem. Is this correct?
All help apreciated
