That's no lady - that's me...
Thanks for the pictures.
If it's OK with you, will probably put them in my blog sometime.
Tackled the starter this morning. Corroded wire feeding the solenoid, it had been rubbing against a plastic cable guide, probably since new, and worn right through the insulation. Only green powder where wire should be.
As I looked around for a way of accessing this, nothing more than the power of my gaze made a connector drop right out of its receptacle on the main battery feed to the fuse. So the whole bike's electrics became dead.
I think I was lucky to get home from Bodmin.
There was a lot of green powder all round here.
All fixed better than new (I hope).
Will put it all back tomorrow morning as they say the sun will shine. And my right thumb has forgotten what it's there for.
All the best
