Hi all
I have a vespa px 125 disc it's been idle for 12 months.
I have put new battery in
I have changed the old fuel
I have sort of checked the spark. As not very good with mechanical issues. The only thing that works is the horn.
Any idea on what to and how to check nexed. Thanks in advance.

Ok you checked the spark, was there one?

Does the engine turn over on the electric start. If so try squirting a bit of fuel ine the hole where the spark plug goes, replace the plug and try and start again. If it starts or tries you have a fuel issue. If it does neither of the afore mentioned you probably have an electrical problem. Either way it will give you something to start to look at.

Did it run well before it was left idle?
Is the new battery charged?
Will it bump start?
Does it try to start?

Give us some more info and some chaps much more knowlegable than me will be along to help.
