    2000 GP1200r

    I recently purchased a 2000 GP1200r which had been sitting in a garage for 4+ years. The PWC looks like it just came out of the box.
    Before trying to start, I drained the gas, put in a new battery and changed the spark plugs.

    Placed key and goes through the start process (choke, throttle hit, start), engine turns over and over and over but will not start.

    Any thoughts or ideas on what to try?

    Thanks in advance,
    Josh

    Josh, you said battery ... spark to the plugs. its possible the stater may be sticking or burned out. Sitting 4 yrs not good. PM Rich @ www.wfoperformance.net he is the Yamaha guru.
    Good Luck and Welcome to the Hulk !

    Carbs are probably filled with crap/corrosion from old fuel...assuming you have spark

    Guys thanks for the quick post. I checked spark it was good. Decided after some research to drop in a can of Sea Foam (http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/web...oam_6410004-p) and let it sit for 60 mins.

    Went through the start up steps, and after a minute of cranking the motor came to life.

    Again thanks for the response!

    search sea foam on the Hulk and see what everyone says about it before you use it again

    Look, before you go any further, I'd do a compression test as a starting point. Should be 120-125 each. I'd then have the carbs pulled for rebuild and either replace the oil lines or go premix. You don't want a lean condition from sitting carbs. These skis came close to lean from the factory. Seen it happen to a guy that had a 24 hour XLT that sat for years indoors. Told him to have carbs rebuilt to which he ignored. Went boom 3 hours later.

    Good advice. Well worth doing.
