Hello all! Need some help, Please!! I have a 2006 GTS 250. Went on a ride a couple of weeks ago. Stopped for lunch and after that it just cranked, no start. Towed it home. Took it to my dads and replaced fuel pump, fuel level sending unit & put in a new spark plug. It started up & purred like a kitten. transported it back home and went to go for a ride about a week later & no start! I can hear the fuel pump spin up, I disconnected the fuel line at the injector & I have fuel there. I checked the resistance of the injector and its right on. I used a spark tester & I have spark. I even tried to start it with the brown key, no Luck!
Any ideas? I really don't have to cash to take it to the Vespa dealer & my scooter club is supposed to be in a Christmas parade on the 14th, so I really need to get it running.
Thanks!!

Is the injector actually injecting? You can remove it to see if fuel squirts out.

If you transported it while full of fuel you may have saturated the evap canister with fuel. It has been reported on here that trailering with a full tank does this. I don't know if that would cause it to not start or not but it is a thought. I think that you can remove the canister and empty it and let it dry out. Let us know what you figure out.
