I've just purchased this! Its a non-runner but it looks like a well sorted outfit and the price was right. The plan is to work through the likely reasons it wont go until I find the problem. The description from the seller is that it got increasingly hard to start over several months, then wouldnt go at all. Any suggestions?

I would start with the fuel system and injector clean with particular attention to the filter.

Yep,
My plan was to check there is a spark then look at the fuel system. The possibility of a hose split or blown off inside the tank also occurred to me.

Just an update on this project. I've now done about 2500 km without any problems including 1500 last week to attend the Scrapheap Adv Ride in Gulargambone. The original route was varied a bit because of a couple of flooded roads. Fuel consumption averaged 15 km/litre and used no oil. I'm happy with that.

Jobs left to do are to sort out the front mudguard so that the wheel doesnt hit it on full compression, fix the odometer gears and check that the fan works or maybe fit an override switch.

Glad to hear all is going well with it.
Can't complain about about 42mpg. Wish the Triumph would get something like that! I reckon it averages about 12km l ( even less when you get further west and start sitting on 120 and above. )
