My TBS has been running like a dream.....until yesterday!
Filled her up with fuel, put the key in the ignition,pressed the starter button and NOTHING!
Not even a click.
Any ideas?

Cheers.

Clutch, neutral & sidestand switches work together in the ground side of the starter solenoid circuit. 1st places to look I think.

Hey,
Thanks.....I checked out the side stand safety switch connection which was suspect so I disconnected it then reconnected it and Hey Presto...it started first time!

Good stuff ;)

Note that that same sidestand switch also connects to the igniter to keep ignition running, so it needs to be in good order.
