Question about 2006 Aprilia Leonardo 300
Well it happened. Yesterday I went to start the leonard and it would turn-start-die. After a couple of tries
With no luck I hit the starter again and it sounded like the starter was spinning freell with no motor drag. After thatvsound I stopped. I let it sit for a minute and then hit the start button and nothing! All I could hear was a loud click from the right rear side. I called my dealer since it has another year warranty and he said it sounded like the starter relay. He has had several problems with the relays and actually stocks about 8 of them. After he addresses the starting issue, he is going to look into why it started and died. But first things first. According to my dealer, these relays have had several issues. Is this common or is it, like coil failure, a passing phase? It broke my heart to trailer it back to the dealer especially when my neighbors piece of shit sportster 883 was pulling away. ,I've heard about a few relay problems...But not many at all. What you are describing sounds more like a problem with the starter motor, or a worn gear leading from the starter to the sprag clutch (there appears to be 2). Or the sprag clutch itself. But that would be the first time I have ever heard of any problems there. Hopefully, its just the relay....We all know the Capo has her little electrical gremlins Good luck, and please keep us posted. ,,,
