          I Snipped the wires isolated them and. . . Still no start. I think I have found all the electrical issues. It is trying so hard to start.
          So now Iím going to move to not enough fuel.
          I could try spraying some starting fluid and see if it fires up. If not when I get time I will start by taking off the fuel line to inspect where it got kinked by the shop that did all the damage to my bike. Then she f that doesnít fix it Iíll be taking off the tank, and taking apart the fuel pump. I will post pictures when I do it. It will most likely be after Thanksgiving.

            I would not be afraid to try a couple of squirts of starting fluid into the carb or even onto the air filter just to isolate that it is in fact not getting fuel.
            I dont know what kind of provisions is on the fuel system, if there may be a tap for testing pressure.

              Also, does the fuel pump run for a couple of seconds after they key is turned to the run position ? If You can not hear it turning on, it might be quiet enough that it could require a hearing enhancer, a largish screw driver held to the tank and the end of the handle to the ear will do the trick.
