Presumably Adrians problem is now resolved (by using petrol) but it's worth noting that a t1200 engine should start on the pull cord without any electrics being connected at all- including the battery - EXCEPT that, if the ignition switch is still wired in, it must not be in the "off" position as this is the engine kill position. Pulling off the blue wire of the ig switch would fix that.

a small flat blade screwdriver will work as a key as the keys are very simple and all the same you need to have your ignition on or it will not charge battery and may cause prbems later
