The first thing I would check is to ensure I got the fuel line and electrical lines connect securely.

There will be others post that may have had a similar problem. Do you hear the fuel pump pressure up when you turn on the key. I take it that it is turning over but not firing off.

If water in spark plug cavity, it may be grounding out. Did you also try IAC reset?

The internal fuel line and filter have to sit all the way back(toward the seat) in the tank, between two molded in brackets. If the line and filter aren't seated in there correctly it'll likely float high and the bike will seem like its run out of fuel... If you have a manual you can see what I'm referring too. But I'll see if I can copy the page


I can't cut the pics out of the .pdf but they are in section 5.21

PaiN's post was also my first thought. To test that theory, fill the tank all the way up and then try to start the bike after priming the fuel pump a few times. If it starts, you'll need to remove and the properly install the fuel filter and the pump.

Like PaiN said, if the fuel filter isn't placed properly, easy to do, the fuel filter will ride too high and starve for fuel long before it should.

Water in your air filter

This happens on my Jack-Hammer when I ride in the rain, but if i would wash it without covering the intake that is what you get,

Sputtering and stuttering

Just start the bike with a charger on it, then slowly ride with 4000 rpm around the block, if you go 3500 it can shut off

Yeah when I replaced my fuel filter about a year ago on my Judge, I recall that I had to reach down with one hand and place the filter into the little grove at the rear of the tank just to ensure that that it was in the right place.

What they said.

I am concerned about the unexpected shut down prior to the service work you did, but, to my chagrin, I have always been directed to the last work I did when looking for a problem. I would include a look at the electrical wires where they are fitted to the connectors that are installed in the different harness junctions.

Patience is indeed a virtue when working around electricity.

Good luck with your search.

Did you flush any crud out of the tank when you had the trapdoor open?
