    Welcome along

    Make sure you have a very very good battery and fresh fuel

    No throttle ,just the choke/cold start lever ....if it doesnt start ..maybe a squirt of easy start ..

    If it doesn't fire try full throttle but get ready to back off as soon as it catches...failing that change the plugs

    I did some more testing/digging after i had a look around the site and found the culprit a seized fuel pump probably from sitting so long
    its probably a waste of time but im going to investigate it. thanks for the welcome i look forward to my stay here.
