2011 Megelli 250r hard to start
« on: July 07, 2013, 05:34:24 AM »
Hey everyone, I have owned my Megelli for around 9 months now and it's always been slightly difficult to start especially when hasn't been ridden in a while. My dealer told me that this is because of the difference in the fuel in New Zealand with it being a European bike, is this true? Has anyone else had any similar problems?

Hi and welcome!

Did you buy the bike from your dealer? It seems if there is a fuel issue they should find some sort of fix for that. It will be hard to sell bikes that don't start well.

Anyone else having this issue?

there has been issues in the past with faulty fuel taps, get your dealer to check this first. otherwise it could be not enough choke when starting on cold mornings, kill switch off or maybe even fouled plugs. i've got a 2012 Megelli 250R http://www.megellli250.com and haven't had any problems in 7 months

Yeah I got it from a dealer, it was the dealer who told me that it was because of the difference in fuel and there was nothing I could do, so not sure what to do haha
