Hey, I would listen to what all these guys say--I've been doing it for a few weeks now, and they definitely know what they're talking about.

I'm far less experienced, but here's another thing to consider. When you finally did get your bike to start--say, after putting the new battery in--how many tries did it take to start up? Also, I really don't mean to ask an insulting question, but is it possible you're not using the choke?
