Hi

ET4 150 sitting around for about 6 months. I changed the battery and charged it. Installed battery and tried to start no power at all to headlight, turning lights or horn. I do have red blinking light on speedometer.

Any suggestions what I should look for before I start taking it apart?

Thanks
Greg

Check the fuses - one goes to the immobiliser and onto the CDI which powers the LED. The other (likely to be blown or a bad connection) does the other stuff, including dash lights.

Hi

I changed all of the fuses 2 near the battery and 2 on the left front panel

Still no power to light up anything

I know the battery is good. But no luck

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

Thanks. That was it I needed a new ignition switch

Started right up after I installed it

One more question I have
It idles a little rough and when I try to accelerate the engine dies.

Any ideas?

Thanks again

The carburettor needs a thorough clean, and the vacuum and fuel lines need to be checked for cracks. Changing them is a very good idea after all these years.
