I dropped my Veloce on some gravel at 5 - 10 kph and broke off the front brake fluid reservoir. For a short term fix, I sealed the opening but still only had about 2/3 braking in the front. After about 900 km the bike suddenly refused to start - the ECU wouldn't open the injectors and the engine made an unusual sound. If it did start - a 1 in 5 chance - it seemed to run OK, just trouble starting. One mechanic told me that the starter bearing had failed so the ECU| wouldn't let it start, another that the ECU senses the poor brakes and prevents starting. Is either correct? I would think that it should start and then shut down when put into gear for either? Is the fall even related to the non start? (3000 km odometer).
