Thanks for asking.

My bike died today on a trail. I had taken the horn off and the horn connector got loose and shorted on the frame, blowing the main fuse. Fortunately there was a spare mounted next to it. Interestingly, with the fuse blown the bike would run and could be bump started; but I couldn't kick start it (or e-start it, obviously). The idle speed seemed a little low and irregular, though.

Apparently the positive cable for the battery can chafe through where it's held by the frame bracket. I re-routed mine around the bracket. As a bonus, now the battery is even easier to remove. I'll check the e-start cable routing, thanks for the tip.

Also, new sprockets are on order. 12/57. Yeeeeaaaaahhhh.
