Riding back from work today, all.going lovely when suddenly the ignition cuts out, engine dies and I'm forced to pull the clutch in and coast down the dual carriageway until I find a lifesaving side road in just the right place.
The bike has power, lights come on, dials all work, etc. Fuses are all fine. But the bike will not start. There's not even a click from the solenoid. Can't be jump started and obviously won't bump start (or it wouldn't have stopped running in the first place). I've just had the bike recovered home, so does anybody have any ideas what the culprit might be?
It's a 1998 GSX600-F, carbs, no immobiliser or fancy electronic stuff to blame. Bike has been fine until now, no difficulty starting, nothing unusual.
Ironically I had just agreed to sell it! I don't think the buyer will want it now...
Thanks in advance for any help!
