Post storage woes
First time on here for a few years!
I used to run a gtv and we currently have a mito and a couple of fourtraks
I searched for an answer but nothing on here really seems to be specific to my problem, hope someone can help..
I've just bought a 147 jtd 53 cheap (£200) as it's been off the road for about two years. It's a lusso and in cracking condition.
The chap I bought it from said he used to start it and run it around his drive every couple of months until recently when he went to do it and it wouldn't start.
When I picked it up the battery was 100% flat.
I've tried charging and starting it with my fourtrak but I don't think it's getting enough juice.
I've put ten litres of fuel in it (as he said it had probably run out) and bled the injectors.
I'm not getting any warnings other than and abs thing.
So, it's it worth my while spending the money on a new battery or are there other things I can try to see if it's goer first.
If I can get it running we'll certainly keep it for summer economy and put one of our four wheel drives off the road, and sell the mito which is taking a pounding on our roads.
I live in the midle of nowhere so it's going to be a pain to get it anywhere or have someone look at it at home.
Any advice much appreciated !!
It would be a shame to pass it on for scrap..
