it goes like this, it wont start after few days standing. 

usually it starts bit then dies, and after that just cranking but cannot start.

and then:  after usually 10-15 hours, it will start again. 

what it can be?

removed tank, put new fuel, check wires, there are spark, there are fuel..

maybe it’s flooding.   Bit of fast idle lever if it’s cold and don’t touch the throttle. Over the 15 hours the excess fuel will evaporate hence maybe why it starts.  If batt is anything other than 95% it won’t have a strong enough spark.

this has happened to me when out and about normally I use an Allen key from the tool kit to jam the throttle bodies open, and let it sit for 20-30 mins normally does the trick, just remember to remove the Allen key before starting otherwise you'll have full open throttle !!!!!!!

I had the same problem starting from cold. Even when on a battery tender.
If it didn't catch first time, I'd have to put the charger back on, walk away for 40 mins, and then try again.
It would also crank slowly when hot. I fitted a bigger battery, but it was the same. After I fitted the John Walker heavy duty cable kit and 150 amp solenoid, I've never had a problem starting since. It catches first time every time and the starter spins quickly.
The original starter and battery cables barely pass enough current and it's probably fouling plugs.

Question everything.

As the boys above say.

They have a way of starting that once mastered works a treat and again as Rick said, check solenoid is s genuine 150amp and the cables for corrosion. When new they weren't great for current and at best it's 17years old now on the OEM ones
