With the motor I could save 1/2 hr and be there basically rested up. I could pedal home w/no problem. This worked well for probably 5 or 6 trips then the bike got harder and harder to start and now doesn't start - so now it sits in the garage :-(
I am not the most experience motorbike mechanic, but from what I have read, you might check your head gasket and see if it is blown. That would be a simple fix. You may not be getting any compression.
Anyone else have a take on this?
