Hi Steve(s),

Surely this is the normal 1100R starting problem after a short/long layoff?

The Handbook really ought to have the following instructions:
1 Turn on the Petrol
2 Go into kitchen, fill kettle, boil, make a pot of tea, wait for it to brew and then drink tea.
3 Return to garage and press the Starter button.

Follow these instructions (give it 5+ minutes for the petrol to fill the carbs) and then it will fire up properly.
You will be amazed just how long it takes to fill those carbs!!!

Try it…….
