So I went riding yesterday after a two month hiatus due to a hand injury. Was having one of most awesome riding days ever! never had so much confidence in my riding and my machine, especially weird after not riding for two months. Anyway, so I'm riding all day balls out, throttle pinned, trying everything insight. Felt like I could master anything and I was. Well, this is where it gets weird...... After doing this nasty hill climb up a extremely rutted out trail, I decide to come back down and do it again, but much faster. So i start up the hill, which has this nice road gap in the middle of the hill, and I'm about 30 feet from the top when the guy in front of me just falls over and lets his bike go. I tried to go around it but going out of the deep rut and onto the side of hill just didn't work. I was pissed I had to drop it because I hadn't fallen all day. Well, I turn the bike around, jump on and proceed down the hill with the bike off. I get half way and decide to slip it into gear and bump start it. It starts as usual, then all of sudden, the starter starts to engage(and no I did not push the button mind you!). I try to hit the kill button. NOTHING. I try pull the clutch in. NOTHING. finally the rear locked up hard. I went over the bars, down the hill no big deal........ but then my bike flips over, because the starter is still going inching the bike along. the bike falls next to me, starter still going. still I try to hit the kill button. NOTHING. I even pulled the wires out of the starter button. still going. It finally stopped. I assuming because the starter motor or the relay fried. rode the the rest of the day just fine. I hardly ever use the starter and I now I'm going to eliminate it because I definitely don't want that to happen again! I'm assuming the relay welded itself inside somehow and just provided juice to the starter until it fried or the battery died. I will investigate. Weird.
