New to Sprints (also have a Legend), so excuse the ignorance!
After having the fork seals done under warranty at the dealership (where I bought the bike, some 90miles away) I noticed the clutch cable was fouling the ignition key - due to the cable being incorrectly routed in front of the fork. Disappointed in the dealership but hey ho. Easy enough to sort I thought. Following the workshop manual (except for disconnecting the battery) I loosened the locknuts at the clutch end to allow the inner cable to be disconnected at the clutch end, then disconnected the inner cable at the clutch lever end. Rerouted the cable behind the fork leg, loosely connect the inner cable at the lever end, and then connected back up at the clutch end. Adjusted to 3mm play at the lever end, tightened the lock nuts at both ends. So far so good. 3mm play set at lever. Went to start it, and no joy!? I'm guessing it is the switch at the lever, however it looks to be free and moving, and the lever closes fully to the grip. I've squirted a touch of WD40 in, but still no luck starting it.
Does anyone have any tips, experience, or thoughts that might solve the problem? Any advice gratefully received!
