Re: Engine Issue
This bike has a paper fuel filter. If you did get some water, it could have caused what is going on and cleared as the filter finally started passing fuel better, water clogs paper filters really well. If you have not changed that filter in the past 30K miles, now is the time to do it. Along with the rubber hoses inside the tank if they are original. Many of the suggestions above are related but kind of more complicated. I try the simplest things first. Changing the filter is not really simple but basic. I like the part about the charcoal vapor recover device. Over filling and flushing fuel into it causes what happened to you also. I recommend they be removed, often called a canisterectomy.
Clymer sells a service manual for your bike, a good source of information on how to do stuff.
