So......I have just acquired a 996 that has not been turned over for about 2 1/2 years. Problem is that it still does not turn over. I do not hear the fuel pump prime when I turn the key on, so I am thinking that this is the problem. Does anybody have any ideas on how to trouble shoot this problem. Oh and one more thing.......are any of the needles supposed to move when you turn the key on like on the xx9 bikes?
