Hi guys. I joined this forum In 2009 while looking for an RSV. Just 8 years later I finally got one 😂.

It's a blood orange MY06 on a 58 plate with 10k miles. A snip at £3750. Took it out for its first ride, however and it cut out. Turns over all electrics functioning normally but won't start. I believe it has been stood for a year or so. I was limited to what I could do at the road side but I siphoned out most of the petrol and replaced with new and still won't fire up. Any suggestions what to do next?

Thanks in advance 😊

Did you buy it from a dealer ? Let them fix it under sale of good act.

If private it could be many reasons. You get more help here RSVR.NET Forums

It could be simple ! The magneto is known for problems, is the battery fully charged for example ?
