Installed RPW Slash and VFC, wont start?
I have a 2005 Vegas with 11,700 miles with the 92c.i. engine; this morning I installed RPW slash pipes and the Lloydz VFC 3 in the bike. After all was said and done the bike will crank but wont start. I tried everything, I pulled the tank off twice to make sure I hooked up the fuel line properly, I even bled the system a second time to make sure I pressurized it right the first time.
I checked all the fittings with the VFC and everything is secured, I just put brand new spark plugs in it as well as I thought that might have been the case. I spoke with somebody at Lloydz this morning and they ran through the start up sequence with the VFC on the phone with me and they said the VFC is working fine.
It still has the stock air box but that shouldn't prevent it from starting. I have an S&S air box on the way which will get here next week.
Anybody else have any suggestions? Am I not priming it enough? I followed the service manuals suggestions of priming it 3 times before starting, that still didn't work.
Like I said, the started turns and turns but it just wont start; almost like its not getting fuel but I know it is.
I also check all the fuses and they all seem fine, and yes it has fuel in it, almost a full tank.
