I took her for a 15 minute spin and all was well.
After that I locked her up again and went on a 2 week holiday (to Cirali and Kas - Mediterranean...V nice
). I went down to the garage yesterday morning and started her first time.
What could have been the cause for her not to start?
That happened to me last winter. We had it nasty here, not able to ride for weeks on end. I followed the advice on page 26 (engine does not start) in the owner's manual, and it didn't work. I used my left thumb to push the start button, and gave it a little throttle with right hand. It started, and kept the revs up, and it settled in. Haven't had problems since, riding just about every day now. I was running Stabil at the time also.
