Q: Looking for a little help.
Came back from 3 weeks off....bike stored in doors, 75 is deg. F, plugged in so all systems were 'go'...rolled it out, climed on, kick stand up, twist key, hit starter button.....
Bike fired up but the starter would not dissengage....I had to disco. the battery to shut it off...not a small task when your dressed and ready to head out....no tools in site.
Battery disco'ed.....key off....starter stopped....light 'smoke' from under the seat as it was up, the seat that is.....30 some odd min. later...no smoke.
This happened once before and repeted key on and off stopped the problem in about 30 sec. Todays episode went on for about 15 min.
Q: what do you gents think? wire? starter? dirty contacts? ignition?
Problen and solution, any or all of, would/will be greatly appricated....My K bike is my daily ride....by choice....as there is more than one 4, or 6, wheeler at 'the ready'
