Sometimes they work, and sometimes they dont. In my crash last April, my bike came to rest on its right side, hanging the throttle, making the engine bounce of the limiter until I shut it off. When I first got the bike, I had a near miss with an old man in an Isuzu Pup who pulled out in front of me. I stopped the bike within 3ft of the drivers side door of the truck, but lost my balance because I was leaned so far over the front of the bike (improper braking skills yes, I was caught off guard
) , and tipped it over. I liked to have never got that fucker cranked back! Even trying to roll it off it wouldnt crank, and then, mysteriously, she fired right up. Tip sensor I assumed.
