    If so I'd like to nominate myself.

    I've not ridden the bike since September and this morning I'm taking it to KRG Motorcycles for some suspension upgrades. I was fully confident that the bike would start after a few cranks as it's been sat with the Optimate blinking away next to it for a few weeks. Smug me. Mr prepared and all that. Anyway I've just been out to unhook it and get it ready to ride over and find the end of the Optimate wire that should be connected to the battery laid on the floor.

    Probably should have connected it, eh? :oops:

    Will do mate. This is just a racetech gold valve kit and some different springs.

    I’m assuming you didn’t fluke out and find it started anyway?!

    I did a similar thing a couple of months back.

    My 911 Turbo drains the battery pretty quick if not used, (as they all do), so leave it on a trickle charge.

    Went to use it one morning, it was totally dead, so I was cursing the car and Porsche :mad:

    Got in the other car and planned on dealing with it later.

    The next day when looking again, I realised I'd forgotten to flick the switch to turn the charger on at the wall :rolleyes:

    Good ole Honda.
