RC8R wont start
I’ve been having problems with the selected gear indicator/neutral light on my bike. It’s getting 1st, N and 2nd mixed up
(this all started when I gave the chain a good clean)
So this evening I took off kick stand and underneath it the gear selected indicator
In my stupidity I also took off the clutch plunger cover thing at the side of the engine near the front sprocket. (to clean in there also)
Anyway I took off the the gear indicator thing small amounts of oil trickled out, gave it a quick clean and put it back in.
Cleaned the side/kick stand as well and then put that back on over it.
put it all back together, tried to start bike, but it wouldn’t start
Was making 1 turn of the start (maybe even half a turn) but no joy
Connected TuneECU thing to read error codes, Ran tests, nothing coming back.
Now it just makes a tick when I try to start it
Any idea what I could have done?

For those of you who can remember them, ooh the nostalgia ……..
