I think you'll find that the starter will work fine with a fully charged battery. My '68 CL350 has the same issue with the electric starter. If it sits for a couple of days it won't turn over with the electric start. After I ride it for a few miles and the battery charges it works fine. My batter was new a few months ago so I don't think it's the condition of the battery. Try jumping it with the car and see if the elect. start works then.JDReno said:Ok, thanks Steve. I guess that's good and bad news... Have you heard of this happening before? Or any idea what might be the culprit?
Is that bike a Canadian model? I've never gotten a good answer re: the tank stripe below the wings. I've only seen pictures of the striped tank but all US version of the '68/69 I've seen have always been solid color like mine.
