Not sure, but I know that it's what they pushed when I took the MSF course. Granted, I was already doing it, and I'm not sure why, but that probably played a roll in why I still do. At least with the CBR, which I don't usually ride. Now, on my 10R, I usually shut it down by putting down the kickstand as I coast into my parking spot. Because it's cool. But I don't screw around with the wife's bike like that.

Still wondering what's wrong with just turning the key...


As English is not my native language please ask me to rephrase or explain if you don't understand me.

Like I said, that was the process as taught by the MSF course.

So, today I finally got around to putting it on a trailer and hauling it out to the cycle shop. Weather is getting nice, wife is getting restless. Anyway, told them what was wrong, they came out to help unload it. Turned the key and hit the button and what do you know! Fired right up. Dammit. So he shut it off and tried again, no dice. Whatever it is it's apparently intermittent, sounding more and more electrical to me. They'll figure it out, I sure couldn't. I've mounted some fancy hand-grip thingees for my ankles when it's done, so recovering it should be relatively comfortable.

I'm not sure if I should be embarrassed or skeptical. They're alleging that both the battery terminals weren't tight. Now, I'm not saying they were tight, but I'm pretty sure I took the battery out while trying to diagnose it for some step of the process, and when I gave up I just didn't tighten things back down all the way because I figured they'd be taking it back apart anyway. I could be remembering wrong though, sort of a lot has happened since then. Like winter. All of it. Regardless, though it would be embarrassing, I'm hoping they're right, because I don't really want to have gone to the trouble of bringing it there only to have it do this again the first time she rides it to work and have her be stuck there.
