Hi everyone,

New to the forum and essentially a mechanical newbie so be gentle please!

Went to go out for a ride last Thursday, started her up, got to the top of my street so about 20m, then she just cut out. Was working fine 2 days prior.

Drained the battery trying to start her up. Jumped it and she started for like a second then cut back out again. Bike kept turning over but nothing would happen. Charged battery back up, petrol is in the tank. Only thing I notice that's different is the sound when you turn the bike on -
- Sounds more like an owl rather than the normal electrical buzz.

No idea where to start or what to look for. Thank you in advance.
