    seems to be a common problem but no real answers. It runs fine for an hour on the road, park up for 10 mins and go back to start........ Nothing!!! Really frustrating and can't find any solutions online. Plenty of posts explaining the same issue but no guru answers yet...... Please help!!

    Is it no fire, or no turn over on starter?

    What Murdo said. You need to provide more information on the symptoms.

    Cranking but won't turn over?
    Starter solenoid clicks but no cranking?
    No electrics?

    etc

    Best to try and capture it on video (no talking!) for others to diagnose

    It's got a new battery and turns over fine. There is no fire. I'll post a video tomorrow, good idea..... :)

    Have you tried some throttle to start it when it's warm. Could be very rich and flooding. Do you need the choke to start it cold?
