winding noise killed it?
« on: May 27, 2017, 02:35:29 PM »
the bike was sitting all winter. started up fine no noise no trouble but the  first drive I heard a high winding/grinding noise that increase in pitch as I accelerated then suddenly pinged then it died. come to find out if also drained my battery. after charging the battery and attempting to start the bike there is a low tone grinding noise that I can also feel. asks the bike won't turn over. it's not the starter or bendex they were removed and tested.

does engine have compression?
1st and 2nd usually have an unfair advantage.  3rd is usually the best, can learn the most from.  paraphrased from Don Quixote, over 400 years ago, still true today
