:roll: Hello, I'm new to the forum. I am trying to start a VF1000R that I've just purchased. It's been stood for a while and it won't start. I'm going to drain the tank and the carbs, but I'm wondering should I hear the fuel pump whirring for a few seconds when I turn the ignition key? There's no sound at all. :roll:

No, the fuel pump starts operating if you press the start button, not after turning the ignition key.
