Is it possible with an SV

would more info help? hmmm... took it to the jet wash earlier, started again to get it home but can't start it now.

also took the rearset off to try and change my gear lever though. Couldn't so put it all back on again... that's when i realised it wouldn't start so I'm not sure what I've donew.

Might have to join the AA.

We all do it. When I got mine, I didn't know you had to pull in the clutch to start it- I went to pick it up from where it had been stored, thought it had a flat battery, pulled the battery out, took it home, charged it, took it back, plugged it in, still wouldn't start... Went home again, very angry, and on the bus I read the manual and...

I vividly remember a sign in the lauderette my ma used to use before we had a wosh mosh, back in the early 70's.
