Fuel tank specifics

I haven't been on in a while, but I finally got a day to work on my project bike and I finally got it running. It is a '99 GSXR 750 engine. I ran it with the tank up and realized that the fuel rail return line is not hooked up and I am not sure which line to plug it into on the tank. There are three on mine, does somebody know?

A 99 750 is FI right?
I only have two but mine is carbed

just guessing though the there should be a pressure line (the big one) a return line (small one) and a vacuum line they should plug into the auto matic petcok

hope this helps if you can post a pick so I can see what you are working with.

90 5.0 is pretty close.
You'll have the main pressure line, which will have an elbow and a hard plastic connector on it.
You'll also have a return line next to it coming from your fuel rail and the last line which should be smaller and will just be your tank vent line if memory serves me correctly.

If you're still having issues with it Tuesday, bring either the tank or the whole bike by and I'll show you how to hook it all up, no charge.

Thanks for the help guys, I figured it out. The bike is finally running, but I just realized that the lights and gauges won't come on anymore but it still starts and runs, any ideas?

Check the fuses, if they're all good, check to make sure the plug at the back of the meter is plugged all the way in.

*BUMP*
Had the bike running, still no lights or gauges, but then it stopped starting. I drained the tank and found alot of water, probably around 1 liter. I cleaned the tank out to remove all water and pulled my injectors off and cleaned them out and drained the fuel rail and ran fresh gasoline through the fuel pump. I then reconnected everything and attempted to start the bike. Now it will start and run for about 3 seconds and then shut off and it won't restart until I turn the kill switch off and on or turn the key off and on. Then it will start and run for 3 seconds and cut off again. When the bike runs (for three seconds) it will rev up and sounds strong but then just cuts off, even at high RPM. Any ideas?

Maybe fuel pump relay?

I know on fi cars most fuel pump relays let the pump run for 3 secs with the ignition switch in the on position and then if you don't start them they shut off. I have seen mustangs were the relay would only let the pump run for three secs and the leg of the relay that applied constant power was bad.

Just an idea

That sounds like what the problem is, and I bet it is linked to the lights and gauges not coming on. My fuses are good and my CDI is good, i have double checked the plugs and they seem to be connecting well. I am at my wits end with this thing.

and I don't think it is the filter because the fuel flows very freely when the pump is on
