Hi guys, thanks for all the help. I always put the bike into neutral before putting the stand down even if it does do it itself and it’s definitely in neutral . I had a new battery fitted about 8 months ago also. So my options are getting slimmer. I’ve just called into the dealers who say they’ve not heard of this issue before. So I’ve bit the bullet and booked it in. It appears there’s a recall outstanding so that can get done at the same time. I will let you know how I get on

Hope you get it sorted quickly.

Is that for the driveshaft then?

I have forgotten to put the DCT into neutral before putting the side stand down on both the CT & AT but have never had that problem or any other when re- starting normally at least a few hours after though.

Do you think these bikes have a fail safe that prevents the bike the bike from firing up with low oil pressure hence the light being on? I know Rover SD1's used to!!! sh#t am I really that old??? I'm off to get me slippers

Hi everyone, as promised the results of the oil light on and bike not starting. It turned out to be a broken ground wire. And just to be awkward it was tucked away under the seat next to the rear light. It took the workshop 4 hours of dismantling and tracing to locate it. But I’m mobile again and with the forecast being good this weekend will no doubt be out there.
Thanks everyone who offered help and advice

Any Photo's of the Dodgy Earth Lead ?

I have the same Problem and if I hit the Rear Seat the Starter Motor kicks on and Starts.

Many Thanks.
