    GROOVY, what makes you think it's dead? You just posted that it still cranks That means it's not seized up why don't you do a compression test on all the cyclinder first. afterall you just posted that it still "cranks" It's not over until the Fat Lady sings......and we don't have "FAT" ladies here at Green Hulk We all have good looking ladies here at Green Hulk, that is US Coast Guard Bikini compliant Don't give her up that easy

    Mate, DO NOT GIVE UP....

    Its like Jammer says.

    It cranks over....Good

    Take your time, and sort it out slowly.

    It can be even a silly thing, which would not cost much at all.

    Tell us more...

    If you put a old spark plug in one of the coils, do you see a spark?

    Can you hear the fuel pump whirr as you put the key on the post?

    HAVE YOU GOT fuel in it?

    Do you see any error codes on the display?

    When you put the key on the post, does it give a series of 3 beeps, then a period?

    Can you see coolant in the coolant tank under the seat?


    Just a start, answer, we can help, its what we do here(amongst other things).
