    Couple questions first:
    How olds the battery?
    Is it fully charged...should be kept on trickle!
    Have you checked connections are clean and not corroded?
    Have you taken out the plug and checked for a strong spark?
    Check kill switch connections and earths.

    Check these items first shepy...
