@markh came to the Farewell Summer/Fuck the Black dog overnighter on his Africa Twin DCT and one thing he mentioned is that if the battery goes flat you can’t crash start the CRF1000 as it can’t be put in gear without power.

You also can’t jumpstart it easily as it’s very difficult to get to the battery terminals.
