Well, I thought I had a return of the dreaded charging issues on the FF, as the other morning, I pressed the starter button to get nothing but a small clunk.
I immediately thought it was a dead battery, but the handy button tester on the top of the X-Racer lithium battery gave me three lights to say all was well. Bugger.
A bit of messing about and a tap here and there got it started and the culprit proved to be a sticky starter relay.
I had purchased the David Silvers upgrade a while back but when I had issues with the neutral light, I had taken it out again.
Five minutes to swap it out, and a cable tie to hold in the new one and the battleship VF sails again! Plus, I now have the benefit of the main fuse being a modern blade type, not that oddball OEM one.
