Gone Off Fuel

Hi everyone, bike's been laid up for a while and now won't start, think it might be that the fuel has gummed up in the injectors. anybody know of a quick fix, i.e. a spray or product that I can clear them out with without having to strip everything down? Thanks

could be plugs

does the rev counter intermittenly flash to a certain rpm as most modern bikes have a sort of flash code through the tacho which tells what is failing....is it turning over quick enough could b a slightly flat batt ....fuck knows what have you tried so far????????

Is it firing at all?  Turning over reasonably well?


Procedure isn't really to "warm it up" before riding off, mind.   You can take off as soon as it starts, just keep the revs low until it's warmed up a bit.

Loads of people seem to think you need to warm it before riding.  Unless you plan hammering it the moment you're out of the driveway, save yourself time & fuel and don't bother.
