Well my bike arrived an hour ago Very Happy helped the driver unload it down at work and other stuff then went to start it, the battery is flat as the proverbial fart! probably totally deceased too as the bike only done 6 miles or so in two years! Going to ring the bloke i bought it off in the morning, my charger only does 12v and i am assuming this is 6v.
Still dead pleased it's here though - even though i can't get through to wick (because i am working) for a new battery until saturday Sad as i doubt AMS will be open at 7.30pm Sad

Tuggs, if it starts with a kick start can you not take it for a run and see if the battery is holding a charge ?

Very Happy ok it's running, been into town, taxed it, went to auto parts for tax disc holder, put go go juice in it, off to wick after work at lunch tomorrow for some bits Very Happy
Couple of small problems to sort out but hopefully nothing drastic!
already tightened spark plug (was only finger tight), fastened jubilee clip holding air filter 'hose' onto carb, tweaked tick over speed as was too slow, adjusted the clutch, adjusted back brake, i think that's all i did this afternoon at work Shocked
convinced there is a bad connection somewhere on wiring as well as battery knacked, but that should be sorted by tomorrow evening i hope Smile
watch out, loony about Wink
