    sym jet euro 50 starting problems

    I've had a 2006 plate sym jet euro for a few months and its been great. However I didn't ride it for four weeks, the electric start now is very week and won't start it. It takes five minutes or so to kick start. Once it starts it runs fine. I want to prepare it for sale. What to do?
