    Well this time you were wrong!

    It was the field coils in the starter.

    Rebuilt the starter now it works fine, with the same battery!

    Awesome! I bet you never considered yourself a 1 percenter!

    I actually had both problems on my RS at different times; a battery and a starter. New battery, rebuilt starter...darn thing almost starts itself.

    Awesome! I bet you never considered yourself a 1 percenter!

    We could be so lucky, I would be happy with the interest they (1 percenter's) earn in just one month.

    Yeah...

    I was going with the original meaning of "one percenter" as defined here:


    A member of an "outlaw" motorcycle gang. Origin is the American Motorcycle Associations assertion from the 1960s that 99% of motorcyclists are law abiding citizens.

    The Hells Angels, Outlaws, Banditos, Pagans, Warlocks, etc. then adopted the idea that they were the 1%.

    That 1%er just ran a light in front of a cop, and the cop acted like he wasn't there!
