    Maybe poor connections.

    That's possible. I just arrived home after a decent 45 minute run on a hot day, ready to do some testing, and it started not once but 3 times. Battery tester shows battery and charging circuit good. Started no problem when cold earlier too. Wonder if there may be a corroded earth somewhere, because there are no loose connections elsewhere.

    The only other thing I can think of is that the starter had only been used once prior to today's trip, maybe the brushes were so new they hadn't bedded to the commutator properly. To be sure I'm going to have to rise it for a while, see if it happens again, if not then it was the above and if it does I'll investigate the earth/ground wiring.

    Hi Paul,

    Yes I'll do that if I can get to the bottom of what happened today. Hopefully it was just the brushes on the starter being brand new and not contacting the armature fully. Over the next few weeks I'll be riding quite a bit so it will get tested.
