The problem with the immobiliser is down to the antenne by the ignition barrel. For whatever reason the coded signal from the key wasn't getting through. The test for which reminded me of the movie Signs, as Artur wrapped the key in tin foil to block the signal. Another part on order. However, solve one problem and another one takes in place. This one is more serious and its a problem with my clutch. Ever since changing the entire clutch set up earlier in the year, the lever action has been really stiff, with the biting point taking up a few cm into the travel. At the start of a ride the lever is okay, but very quickly the lever gets very spongy. I had this problem on the way to the dealership and had the slave cylinder checked for leaks and replaced all the fluid as a matter of course. Arrived at work this morning and by the time I got to work there was no resistance in the lever at all and the plates were hardly separating. The ride home could be very interesting indeed. Did you know you can buy a Fireblade for £8k?
