PostSubject: help needed with intermitant problem   Sat 15 Apr 2017, 16:36

hi all , happy easter

i have just rebuilt the front end of scoot
had to replace top cage / fairing support
plugged all the electrics back in and now
the pump does not prime starter is dead
lights ok horn etc ok
2 days ago i was trying various things / tests and
i left the ignition switched on while i was
working on another bike and low and behold
i heard the pump prime , and i pulled the brake and it
started straight away, did this 5-6 times no problem
today i carried on sorting the abs pump but when i
again tried to start nothing again, very frustrating
its like i have the side stand down
any help ideas will be much appreciated

You could bypass the side stand switch -temporarily.

Try cleaning side stand switch with a spray cleaner. It needs to be plastic and rubber safe though.
Many brake clean products are not good cause other issues.
Or bypass that's the best way to solve know for sure.

bike is all together again and runs and looks great
had to lend it to errant son again for his commute as
he punctured the back wheel of the cagiva elefant i had lent him
i am off work tomorrow so i will fix the puncture and
at get my silverwing back!!!!!
as a side issue , i took my wife to dinner in soho london 2 weeks ago
(great town scoot)
on my aprilia sportcity 300 and some bastard stole it !!
so be extra careful , chain the scoots up as bike theft is becoming
an epidemic at least in the south east of england

my aprilia sportcity 300 and some bastard stole it !! ----- did they hot wire it or just snatch it up and load it into onto something? Any security cameras in the area that could be checked? bummer.

just don,t know , parked in a motorcycle bay ( we now pay £1 ), same one i have parked in for more than
35 years , there were at least another 20 bikes /scooters there as well , put the steering lock on and it had the factory imobiliser (chip in key) fitted and it just vanished , police show no great interest
just said they see 100 bikes stolen in the west end of london every week but they will check the traffic cameras , heard nothing more from them though , think i will invest in a cheap tracker , and take a big chain from now on,

new directive for the police
low priority any thefts
just concentrating on violent crime knife /guns
government budget cuts and downsizing of the force
oh well , the insurance co. have paid me
all i can do is hope the bastards have a unpleasant life
best wishes to all silverwingers
