Out for a ride yesterday on my 2006 Bonnie. Hadn't ridden in 3 weeks. Hot and humid. About 4 miles into the ride, stopped for a traffic light and the bike just died.Full tank of gas.The warning lights came on, indiacting at least some battery power. Pushed the starter button repeatedly and...nothing. No crank. Just dead.
Fortunately, I was at the top of a really long hill, so turnd bike around toward home, coasted about 3/4 of a mile to the bottom. Tried to start again and it fired right up and took me home. Any ideas??
Had this problem on my 2004 T100 occassionly. Checked switch, all connections etc but every thing seemed ok. While I was messing I pressed starter there was a loud mechanical bang from behind right hand side panel, bike fired up and never had problem again. Possibly solenoid sticking occasionally? Got a 2009 T100 now and after 4500 miles never had same problem nor has it cut out in the wet which my first one did on a couple of occasions.
