Could be another keyless example - just too many electronics !

itchyfeet - There is a youtube vid with one of the ever increasing amount of biking 'vlogers' that are appearing on the internet. He is testing the new GS on a IronButt ride around.......

I already put up a post about that and embedded the YouTube video, just can't remember which thread. It looks/sounds like the same issue.

My '04 ST1300 had a new battery that dropped a cell. While it obviously could not turn over the starter, it seemed to have no effect on the (limited) electronics on the bike when it was jump-started. I did not try to ride the bike as the fault was discovered at home in the garage, but I think that I could have ridden the bike. Not so, on today's bikes.
