Hi

Let me start by saying I am a big time newbie and have riding for 2 months.

My bike did not start this morning after not being used for 3 weeks and stored in a cold garage. I tried a couple of times but no luck.

When I hit start, the noise is normal for about 2 seconds and then there is a noise coming out from below and wont stop until I stop pushing the start button. It sounds like if something was jamming. I also see the yellow light coming up as soon as this noise starts.

Anyone knows what the problem could be and if need to go to the shop.

John

The most likely problem is a low battery. It's hard to tell without actually looking at it.

Charge the battery until full at about 1.5 amps with your tender and see if that makes a difference. If not, the next step is to test the battery with a volt meter and a load tester.
