    Don't know about the more modern bike but my '05 twinspark gives me about 260 miles to empty - that's commuting, not a decent run.

    I believe the ignition switch connects the red to the grey/green and the red/white to the green.

    The grey/green seems to go to a connector for optional heated handlebar grips.

    I had assumed it was a twinspark model because of the hazard flashers.
    It's starting to look like you've got the switch (maybe from a twinspark bike) but the bike isn't setup for them - i.e. no...

    I can't see whether the single plug is a blue/yellow or blue/white. Possibly it's from one of the diodes under the relay tray. They are used to activate your hazard flashers, so while you've got it...

    The only orange wires I can see on the wiring diagrams are (1) from the hazard switch to a 3 pin connector and (2) on the RH handlebar switch also to a 3 pin connector.

    Is there any continuity...

    Could it be something faulty with the ignition switch or wiring - symptoms seem similar to simply turning the ignition off?

    My saddle has split due to old age and it's started to split the foam underneath so I've decided to have a go at re-upholstering it.

    I think the main issues are probably:

    - water pump seals can fail quite early - look for fluid at the weep hole
    - steering head bearings can fail quite early - probably worth a bit extra grease...

    I think that's the tail light live which probably comes on with the ignition - try it to check.

    I didn't want to say which direction the starter goes in case I made a mistake, but I agree with you - should be turning anti-clockwise viewed from the RHS of the bike.

    I guess the other option is to try a new starter motor in case it's weak but it's a bit of an expensive gamble.
