Title: Any idea?
Post by: templar7 on 01 December, 2019, 04:49:42 PM
I recently had the coolant changed on my 2011 cbf 1000 FA, at a local garage. Since then the bike has been difficult to start. Once started runs fine. Anyone got any ideas? DO NOT want to go to that garage again, even if they paid me.

Thanks in advance.

Why not take it back to the garage, show them the problem and give them an opportunity to correct any fault they may have caused?

Do you mean local motorcycle workshop - or literally a garage that repairs cars?

It was a motorbike repair shop. Seems to of sorted itself out now. Starts most of the time. I do use it most days.

Phew,  for a moment there I thought the worst!
Only possibility I can think of is that they spilt  coolant into electrics or top of engine drowning the plug caps?
