86 1200I: Stuck rear axle nut
we are a small, supportive group of folks so your 'brain freeze' won't go viral.

I once was called to aid a friend who could not et spark on his dual-purpose bike.
He hadn't run it in awhile and was afraid it had an electrical problem.
When I got there, he had drained, flushed and filled the gas tank, installed a new spark plug and was in the process of checking for electrons at the key switch and coil with the aid of a car battery.

I convinced him to put it all back together and try one more time.
I suggested he go through his normal start-up routine: fuel, on; key switch, on; stop-run-stop switch, off. - oops!
He switched it to run, set the compression release, a half-hearted kick and the bike roared to life.
(I noticed the switch in the stop position when I first walked up)

Stuff Happens
enjoying the view from the saddle....... due mainly to the people and information found within this site
