ok cool.

i will have to double check if shes under warranty...

its an 05' with 20,000 kms on the clock.

battery is fine. at first it would take 5-6 times to start on occasion.
but the last couple of weeks its started to make awful snatching noises...

amber ill give you a call next week. ive been hell busy writing a thesis that is due on friday. havent had time to do anything.
i might have a few other mates that would be in on the bulk oil buy too...

Mr Amber Ale was correct !

it is the sprag clutch......................
speedy is in at the shop getting fixed now.
waiting another week for the part to arrive, i dunno if i can bear it.
withdrawals have kicked in after a day and a half. plus ive had to cancel my w/e ride!

it would seem this is a common problem for speedys. the shop had to do another sprag last week too...
