YZF600r 2001 Won't start

Hey names Mike.

Bike: 2001 yzf 600r

Problem: bike wont start

Leading-up-to actions before problem happened:
-Took it to yamaha dealership, and the people there changed my oil, and replaced the speedometer cable.
_________________________________________________________________
After they did that, i tried to ride it home from the shop, and it wouldn't start, currently it's sitting in the shop rotting away week after week.

They currently are "waiting on the manual to come in the mail to figure out how it should work."

The bike will sound like it's starting then make gurgling noises almost similar to the carb flooded, but after an hour with these guys trying to start it, and directly pumping gas into the starter, and changing the plugs, still no luck. Need advice.

in order to contact me, PLEASE EMAIL ME as i do not check the internet often, but i do have a blackberry. I will be greatly appreciated.

PS: i understand that they are morons and are being unprofessional for their lack of effort and being mechanics in general. I am not urged to start any quarrels with them, i simply want to start my bike, and ride. Not fight, thanks

-Mike Palmer

Long shot, but did you check the oil level? Really full maybe?

Moderator - New riders, help me fix it and riders' gear. Send me a PM with questions, suggestions, or issues.

Never out-ride your ability to react (even stop) within the distance you can see (at least on the street).
