Unhappy My very first 919 problem after 46.5k miles

She won't start. . . specifically, the starter won't spin.
Battery is perfect, as are all connections. Turn the key, clutch in, kick stand up, hit the starter button, relay clicks. . .nothing.

I thought I'd replace the relay first.

Any experiences??

Thumbs up

I fixed it or it fixed itself. . .I took a couple of minutes and removed the starter relay, tapped it (to hopefully loosen the internal switch), replaced it and viola. . .she's alive!!

I bought one to troubleshoot the "no lights" problem; it's only been used once for less than 5 seconds.
Make me an offer if interested.
