    Hi everyone, I have a 6 month old Peugeot SP4 2T LC, which runs fine once running. When I first had it started on the button, but for the last few weeks, the starting has been hit and miss. Today, for instance, cold it started on first kick, would not start on button, rode about 2 miles went to supermarket, came back to bike after 15 mins the bike would not start on button, and I finally got started after 20-30 kicks. Battery has been on oximiser and plug checked (only 720 miles on clock). I am begining to think the e-choke is the problem, how do I check, I am useful with spanners and have multimeter. Is it energised when cold or hot, basically how it works, my other bike is Honda pgm-f1 and uses a an IAV valve as choke. Any help on the basics of e-choke and test I would be grateful.

    Not sure had service at stated time but Peugeot Scooters UK stopped trading. I am in the process of contacting the service dealer.
