    My starting issues have returned

    Having recently fitted updated 14 battery my bike seemed to fire up fine
    Today fitted an updated solenoid from Wemoto just to be safe.

    Since fitting this the bike seems to be turning over slower and slower, then after a few tries resets the clocks etc as if the battery is dead, this despite it being hooked up to a trickle charger all the time?

    Any ideas?
    Duff solenoid?
    Duff new battery?

    Driving me nuts

    I know on 04 onwards you need to do an ignition on for 20 seconds then ignition off .... without starting the engine .... this does something to stop extra current draw and draining the battery .... not sure if this is relevant to pre 04 bikes or not

    sounds like a loose battery lead...

    All leads are as tight as they will go

    Could it be the sprag on its way out that's causing it to do this?
