    It may sound daft but when was it last serviced ?????

    It may just be a case of time for some new plugs and filters (dont forget the fuel filter)

    I read in the user manual that you shouldnt depress the clutch when starting as it drains power for some reason and could cause it not to start???????? Probably zero help that was it....nevermind.

    Depressing clutch is advised in manual under cold conditions as it reduces strain on the starter (ie not turning gearbox too)
