If the bike is a dud then the seller was a magician as he started it when you bought it and started it when he came to your house. Why not bite the bullett and phone him and ask exactly what his technique to start it was.
if it ain't broke don't fix

I spoke to the guy on the phone and he said and I quote " Bike off the stand, full choke, small amount of throttle then starter switch " I had anther go last night and it came REALLY close to starting, but then made a really shitty tight rattling sound. Think I may have killed the battery.
I didn't really think it was a dud, it was a bad joke about my own ineptitude
I'm looking online for some local basic maintenance courses etc, so I can get a bit more knowledge and confidence, but there isn't much around.
C'est la vie eh?
I'll get there.
