Common reasons bike won't start after fuel filter replace?
I replaced the fuel filter. In order to make sure I wouldn't get the filter in backwards I took a pix of which way the arrow points and followed that.
I know the pump is working, cuase I wired the extra 12 volt outlet to it.
I removed the canister, got those lines backwards and corrected that.
I installed quick disconnects in opposite directions of each other.
When I try to get her running, it won't fire up--just turning the over.
My only guess at this point is that the lines to and from the injectors are backwards at the QD?
I can't seem to find which line from the fuel pump goes to the injectors and which is the return line.
ANy other guess as to why she won't start?
I didn't change the spark plugs--so I'm guessing check for spark would be a place to start.
