    Is your battery spot-on and as charged as it can be?

    i really hope i wont be saying this when mine is re-built!

    check all the simple stuff, charge your battery somewhere warm for a few days, i know it sounds over kill but if you can get some heat on the bike before starting it then do it

    Would echo the above thoughts...my bike's on Optimate which indicates everything is fine battery wise but since the temperature has dipped so low the bugger doesn't like starting immediately as it usually does.

    Pull the spark plugs out and take them in doors, heat them up on the radiators for a couple of hours. Make sure they are clean and defect free.

    Take the battery off and take that in the warm house too and charge overnight.

    Fit the battery, then the plugs and start it, hopefully!!

    If it doesn't start after this then let us know and we'll do some more checks with you.

    i suggested this to another guy a couple of weeks ago and was shot down in flames cos the guy didnt tell me exactly what he'd done to the bike BUT........

    please make sure that if everything works on the bike and youve done absolutly nothing else to this bike including moving the battery............that.....

    youve not fitted the crank sensor the wrong way round in the casing easy done, seen it happen a few times!

    recheck my friend and i hope its that easy for you!

    let me know how you get on !

    LOL, only idiots discard advice from the likes of you.

    Could be a hundred and one things wrong here but given the current climate I would have to say start with the battery and plugs before dismantling the bike again.

    Great news Scobie, lets hope for some sunshine and dry roads now.

    I found out early on in my ownership that these RSV's flood very easily and once those plugs are damp you ain't gonna start it no matter what you do.

    It's plugs out, warm then up and back in they go.

    PS. I managed to find this guy on Ebay selling Iridium plugs for RSV's really cheap - Click Me - Make sure you order the right ones for your bike. I received mine in record time, from placing the order to arriving on my doorstep was 2 days. (25 for 4 delivered to your door, can't be bad)
