Summer of V bliss is over:(
« on: September 11, 2009, 09:06:00 PM »
After a spirited  170 mile afternoon ride over the Aufderheide scenic by way,somewhere on the last leg between the Oakridge A&W and the local 7-11 the starter went into melt down :o I went to leave 7-11 with my collection of Ninkasi ales for the evening BBQ hit the starter button and clllllk nothing so i roll started the bike and headed home ??? Quick check and battery voltage was fine,so today I removed the starter and found the windings shorted to the armature :-X unfortunately the second v is missing it's starter so now I have to find one and or do some checking on getting it rewound,luckily yesterdays ride was good and i got a lot of miles on the chicken strips so it didn't totally ruin my grin factor!
