Virago up and running

Jul 23, 2018

I had bought 2 new electronic ignition units through EBay. Seb, the magician motorcycle mechanic, got the bike running. Then yesterday the bike would show the neutral light when switched on but when I tried to start the bike, the neutral light would go out and the bike would not turn over. After some bumbling around today, I stumbled across the probable cause being the positive terminal “lug” on the cable was not securely screwed onto the battery terminal. I took off the cables attached to the battery, cleaned all the cable terminals with emery paper and alcohol. I then firmly reattached the cables to the battery. The bike seems to be firing and running reliably.
