I have a 1993 UK spec Pegaso 650 with the Rotax engine.
I have come to use it, and started it up, driven it out of my back garden, round the front of the house, turned it off, locked up the back garden and house, got back out of the house and started it up again.
It started ok, but as soon as I try to put any power on, the engine dies.
So.... I took the fuel tank off, removed the fuel, took the taps off the tank and made sure that both sides are clear, found that the breather at the bottom was solid so drilled that out with 3mm drill bit, then put it all back together.
Now it will not even start!!!!!
I have flattened both my usual YB14LA2 battery and my "test" CB14LA2 battery trying to start it. It has a 10k ohm resistor near to the battery if that makes any difference??
This bike has been difficult to start ever since I got it; maybe there is an underlying cause?
Just in case it may shed any light on the issue, since I bought the bike, I have done cylinder head gasket, water pump oil & water seals, cleaned out ignition lock barrel and the attached electrics, replaced plug, replaced battery, replaced both float valves in the carb, replaced a cracked oil filter cover (and rubber seal) and done a number of oil changes, all in the space of 6 months (and about 6 hours riding!)!
I am running out of patience with this bike....... anyone out there got any ideas where to look for the next problem???
Can anyone point me in the right direction? Am I missing something blindingly obvious?
