Right I know you are all going to laugh at me but washed the Lammy & now it won,t start. :slap:

Changed spark plug checked wiring and dryed them out.
Do I need to change the electric start or is it to do with the carb?
Please help :ii:

What do you mean by electric start?? When you say washed, did you remove the panels? Have you sucked anything into the carb. Try it again tomorrow,maybe replace the plug and cap.

First things first, check for a spark, should eliminate the electrics if you have one.
