Cinq starting problem...

..hi all, sorry my first post is a technical question. Just bought a Cinq 900 which is in very tidy condition. However the previous owner had taken it to the local garage because when it`s been running for 20 minutes it won`t start until cooled down, though they may have said it dies and won`t start until cooled.
Any ideas as to what this is please? The former owner left it at the garage to sell because they didn`t have time to check it over and she`d ordered a new car.
Any help very gratefully received, thanks in advance.

Re: Cinq starting problem...

Welcome, have you done any diagnosis yet?

You'll need to get it to the state of not starting and start looking for clues.

If the plugs are wet then its ignition. If they are dry its fuel.

Go from there.

Cheers
