also left key in overnight, next morning nothing,
clutch started [nice sloping street] in 2nd,
kept revs up [over 2000rpm] when stopped,
continued riding about 15mins to location,,
parked on a sloped backroad..
[yoga] then clutched started her again same..
repeated that sequence about a week before
using starter button,, then she kicked over
and daily general riding was enough..
[didnt have a charger or similar options]
anyway, for this sort of battery drain
it will or can be clutch started..
if not familar with clutch starting/push starting
best start on a long slope if possible, steeper the better,
ignition on, no throttle, push alongside [high side,
left hand drive here so for me thats brake lever side]
alternatively have someone give you a good push
to running while in the saddle, then drop clutch,
in second, perhaps 3rd on the flat..
best to jump on and drop clutch as your weight
drops into saddle, or if pushed, stand up on pegs
then drop weight down as you drop the clutch..
[weight drop to back of seat helps turn engine]
as soon as it kicks over give it throttle,
keep revs up, 3-5000rpm if then stopping,,
then proceed as for a normal ride except
keep revs up when slowing/stopping..
after riding [the longer the better]
park on a downslope [longer the better]
altho a sloping driveway should do it,
the longer road allows for multiple
attempts if you dont get it first go..
