Default Bike won't start after PCV AT install

I installed the PCV and AT last night and wrapped things up this morning and my 2013 XR won't start . It seems like its getting fire and sputtered a couple of times. Any ideas on what is going on?

is the pcv powering up when you turn the key on? just helped a guy with this, his tank ground wasnt good and the pcv wouldnt turn on. just a thought. i grounded mine to an open bolt just at the front of the left side cover,, had to put a different ring on the wire for the larger bolt

A few months ago I took my tank off to install a Lloydz air filter. When I put everything back together, my bike would turn over but not start. After much cussing and almost killing the battery, I discovered that I never put the ground wire back on from my fuel controller.

Check all of your connections!

I grounded to the fuel tank since there was a good ground established. The unit is powering up but I'm also having trouble with the software. It appears that I don't have an APP to run the PCV on my MAC.
Anybody have a solution for that

I speak from experience, that tank ground is a bad idea for the PCV and AT. Mine ran, until I got about 5 miles from home.

I relocated the PCV and AT ground down to the primary case, there is a bolt you can remove that already has something grounded to it. I actually ran a larger gauge copper wire up from this location and then attached my PCV and AT grounds to it under the seat.

ive heard of issues with some computers, you would think it would work with all of them though.

Tank ground is only to prevent static shock when you are fueling up , hence not blowing yourself up while refueling . It is NOT a secure grounding point.
