    2001 GP1200R Staring issues please help S.O.S

    Just picked up one today. Seller cranked it up when i got there ( in his yard). Got it home a few hours later and wont start. Maybe a carb issue. Should I try some starter fluid and see if it will crank? I am cranking and cranking and it still wont turn over. It has Fresh fuel and plenty of oil. Any info or ideas and I will try to the best of my ability. Just getting into the PWC world and this is my first ride.

    Also make sure the choke lever is pulled until it starts running. If that doesn't work you can put a tablespoon of gas in each cylinder through the spark plug hole. After sitting a while the fuel hoses can drain and its hard to prime again. That's why some replace chokes with primers. You probably have a few things to go through on it before you know what you have if you didn't do a water test on it.
