Aswell as checking the battery, might be worth checking the voltage when the bike is running incase your bike isn't charging enough.

No it would not. It would have detected the low voltage and said no way Jose.
In the pre fuel injection days you would have had some sort of weak attempt to start.

Missed that.  Does this to protect sprag clutch I believe.

... followed by a kickback and having to replace the starter motor sprag clutch.
