Piaggio diesis wont start

Postby frodmyster » Sun Apr 02, 2017 10:46 pm

Hi peeps, newbie here. I have a 2003 piaggio diesis 100 that has been unused and garage since 2005. I have fitted a new battery and have a spark, fresh fuel, cleaned the carburetor out but it just won't fire up. Sometimes it will sound as if it's trying to start but then nothing :( any advice would be great guys and gals. Neil

A two stroke needs fuel , spark & compression to start . As it's not been used for 12 years it's most likely the crank seals have gone ?
