Checked all the hoses underneath and on top of the inlet manifold/cylinder head, all are where they should be. I pulled them all off and checked for any obstructions in the pipes, just to make sure! All were fine......

All the electrical connectors are in place too

This morning when I tried to start it, it tried to fire up (after about 30 seconds of cranking) but just wouldn't 'take' when I stopped cranking.

I read in the owners manual that if after 4 seconds of trying to start the engine, you should floor the throttle. I've read from other sources that this puts the engine into an 'anti-flood' mode or something along those lines. Is this right, or am I pumping more fuel into the cylinders by doing this?

Thanks for any help in advance again!! <It's times like this I'm glad I've got a motorbike too....... lol>
