The Rally has been sitting for most of the last 2 years, and has not run at all in more than 12 months now. With my new garage finally finished (it was outside under a tarp that whole time) I've moved everything in there and went to work getting the scoot going again. I changed the gear oil just because I have no idea when the last time was that I did that. Looked in the gas tank - it was 90% full and I don't see any signs of corrosion. The gas looks normal - red-orange color, and no signs of sediment or anything. That said, I did not put any kind of fuel stabilizer in it, and it could be as much as 2 years old, so it will be quite stale. I can't say for sure if I ran it with the fuel tap off until it died, last time I parked it. I might have thought I was going to ride it again soon enough.
So as of now, it won't start. I put in a fresh plug, so that should be OK. One thing I notice is that the kill switch doesn't feel quite right when I flip it. What do I check to make sure that's working right? IIRC it grounds the coil when you kill it. If it's not that, I guess maybe the carb is fouled and it might need a clean. Any other suggestions?
