G310GS failure to start - starter just didn't turn over
This morning I hopped on my bike to go to work, same procedure as every day, bike in Neutral, side stand up, kill switch in correct position, ignition on, clutch in. With the ignition on, the normal noises (I suspect fuel pump) were heard, nothing abnormal. Normal ABS flashing light. However, when I pressed the starter button it behaved as though the side stand was down with the bike in gear. The only notable item was a brief display of what seemed to be an engine warning indicator on the far right side of the LCD screen (popped up for no more than a second after pressing the starter button).
I tried turning off the ignition, moving the side stand, re-engaging neutral.
No battery light, the bike has worked perfectly up until last night when I parked it, but come this morning that had changed.
I attempted to push start the bike, it turned over and almost sounded like it wanted to start. Eventually I landed up downhill with no more option to push start. I then attempted to start the bike again using the starter button and the starter motor operated and the bike started as normal. I have now driven the bike into work, some 40kms without incident, wondering if it will start when I need to leave this afternoon.
My initial suspicion is that the bike has a cam sensor that may be at the root of the issue, does anyone know if these bikes have cam sensors? By push starting the cam position would have changed and may have woken up the sensor, again assuming there is a cam sensor.
