Confessions of a first time MB builder
Today I took my bike for a ride and it ran great !! Parked it in garage. Came out a few hours later and I just about wore myself out trying to start it. Would not fire. Hmmm scratching head, it's as though the kill button is pressed. Maybe it's stuck. No that's not it. Light bulb goes off in head. Checked wiring connections and sure enough they were touching. I know I need to tape everything up good but I am planning on soldering extension wires and connecting everything neatly higher up on my frame.
The reason I am posting this is that I have learned so much from reading others posts about their experiences and I want to encourage other newcomers that when something doesn't work right don't get frustrated. Go back and check the basics. Probably more than 90% of the time you are going to find it is something simple/stupid.
