Can you hear the fuel pump? if you leave it dry it will get stuck! I have a pdf repair manual that I can email you. Or I can burn you a copy if you wanna pick it up in the EAST.

I've had the same problem with my '03 before. Each time it turned out to be a crimp in the fuel line. I'd check that first.

I think its something to do with your fuel tank. If it just got painted and worked fine before hand. I would check to make sure it isn't clogged somewhere in the fuel line or tank. check your fuel flow.

Make sure that you assembled the fuel lines and vacuum lines properly. You may have the secondary butterflies not opening, a bad injector, or fuel pump issue.

Sounds like it's time to hit up Motorcycles Unlimited and get that thing checked out right.

would that cause it to die? When that deal went out on my bike, it just acted like I was riding with the choke turned on. but it does seem like a fuel/air problem

Seems the backround is this that its carburated bike
Sounds like the bike was running fine then sat outside for a month and now problems.

Well if you have tried the previous comments may I suggest.

1) Do you have the shop manual for the bike? I am guessing no but they are often well worth the $ 100.

Anything electronic or fuel related that could get wet needs looked at.

I assume you pulled the cabs and float levels are fine , everything moves and is clean , passages blasted with some gumout. (Granted just sitting should not affect this , maybe a stuck float but doubt full)

No kinked or cracked lines - no possible vacuum leaks

Is there any type of reset on the electronics, see the manual.
We have had some storms - I do not know if local lightening strikes can screw with the electronics.

Is there a carb position / throttel position feed back of any kind to a CPU or other electronics? and if so is it clean dry and properly adjusted?

Are you using the stock air filter and non modified airbox?
Battery in good condition?

Just some thoughts
Good Luck

What painter did you use to paint your tank? What did he charge you? I need one painted.

Yeah, it's not the best design in the world on these bikes, that's why I said that, it's easy to get it crimped up.

Good deal on the fix, glad it worked out.

No need to do all that, just PM Houseofpain on this bbs and get a quote. He's listed in the Vendor's section under "Tom's Paint and Body".
