    Today I did nothing but yesterday and the last few days there was movement at the station. I received the BECM back from Rick, what a great guy and super fast with the work and redelivery of it to me.
    It fixed the issue with the driver's door latch sticking, which is great. It hasn't fixed the issue with the instrument binnacle illuminating as it should be but we're working on that.

    Anyway, just keep swimming.

    You are only gonna get 3-4 pushes. Does it still make the noise?
    Vid is a bit short.

    It was quite a few until it completely ran out of pressure, i know RAVE says 30 to be sure, when you removed the accumulator.
    No noise once the pedal went soft

    If fuel / ignition fuses pulled, you should be able to spin it by jumping the heavy +ve cable to the small lead terminal with a wire / screwdriver. The small wire energises the piggyback relay section, than engages the flywheel drive via a lever and as it does so then puts the heavy cable current onto the starter armature.
    I spent about 500 miles jumping my Guzzi starter that way with a metal keyring going to / from a rally about 20 years ago, although petrol stations weren't keen with the sparks!
