Sorry, another day another thread…
Was on my usual commute this morning, 25 miles each way on north circular. Around 15 miles in today, stopped at traffic lights, waiting for the lights to change in first gear, clutch pulled in as normal when the engine just died. No spluttering or anything, just dead.
Tried to restart, nothing happened, no turnover, oil light and ABS light on. I quickly checked kill switch, felt for kickstand, couldn’t see any issue so threw on hazards and wheeled to side of the road. Luckily all before lights changed.
After about a minute of trying, suddenly all started fine, bike started, oil light turned off and finished ride into work with no issues, including stopping at several more lights.
Bike is 2012 Hornet, new battery and regulator rectifier a few weeks ago. Once at work I checked the kill switch seems fine, the side stand doesn’t seem loose, and the oil was topped up to the maximum. Temperature on whole route was between 70-105 degrees which is usual for my bike.
Any suggestions on things I need to look at? Should I ignore and assume it was a bad bit of fuel or anything unless it happens again? Or should I get my arse straight to a garage and hope it is nothing serious?
I just spent a grand on the bike with battery issues, new tires, service etc, so really don’t want to spend any money, but safety first.
