Hi Marti5, thnx for responding. Kickstart = Pushstart. (South Africa,JHB).
Further to that, just yesterday I rode her home averaging 70Km/h for +/-35Kms home. Upon my arrival, I switched off to open the gate (2mins). My baby would not start again. Everything else 'electricky' was/is working. I waited for 30min to let her cool-off but to no avail. I tried the old screw-driver trick on the starter but the starter just turns. No cranking of the engine. i eventually had to pushstart her which did the trick.
btw, the idle is also irregular. However in motion she's marvelous. Yesterday again, she developed a funny sort of whirring noise which resonates with the irregular rev (could be power steering); because when I turn, the sound is more evident.
Your response and/or assistance will be greatly appreciated.
