I have an RC51. Check the ignition coils. I had one of the lines get cut on one of mine and had he exact same thing happen. I went thru fuel filter, pump, the whole 9 yards. That was the final verdict!

I had a f4 years back simular problem.. it was the fuel pump.. easy to change out..
Disconnect the the fuel line from the carbs and turn the ign on.. if no fuel spurts out then.. voila theres your problem

Pretty broad here.
It could be anything from a blown ignition fuse to bad gas.
Cover the basics first:
Verify you have spark.
Verify that fuel is getting to the carbs.

If both of those check out you probably picked up a bad load of fuel.
Had you just filled up?

If you suspect the gas, drain the tank and float bowls and pour in fresh fuel and some Seafoam / Stabil or equivalent.

If you can't get it going, give me a shout.

In most cases, yes, but not always. A failing coil (although probably not the case here) can give you false impressions of gas being the culprit by running rough or allowing starts or semi-running conditions only at certain times. A bad or loose ground can also do this, as well as a slew of other electrical issues.

Check for flow of gas through the cylinders first, as fuel issues are much easier to solve. Once you have confirmed gas through the cylinders (crank, pull a plug and smell it), then go through the electrical basics.

ok so get this. I take the tanks off and the intake (air filter housing) so that the carb is stright exposed to the air to give a visual. I try to crank the bike like that and it fires right up. i let it run for a bit, and then put the intake and tank back on, continues to run fine for about 2 more minutes, then dies. wtf? any ideas????? So, I'm getting fire just fine. My fuel pump is fine because I put my thumb over the hose while it was running with the tank off and felt suction.
