I've got a 2001 ZL 600 efi esr and it won't start.I put fresh gas in it this year and nothing. I think its the fuel pump cause there's no gas in the lines. Its got half a tank. And it starts riight up if I put gas in the cylinders then dies after a second. I'm wondering if there is like. A fuse or somthing or if I need a new fuel pump.

hook up a 12 v battery to the fuel pump and listen to hear if the pump is running then go from there.

The wires are under the plastic piece at the base of the steering column. I think it is either purple or brown. (just running off my memory). Correct me if im wrong guys!!!

Im not sure if the newer sleds have the same color wiring, but my 99 has a red and black wire coming off the pump. Like bhoule said, take the trim off the base of the steering and find the connector for the pump. It should be the only wiring coming out of the tank. I used a 12V DeWalt battery last time I checked one and it worked fine. Good luck troubleshooting!!

sometimes on the EFI's you just need to prime the pump after a long storage.

I agree with catspaz8, you probably just need to get gas up into the pump. I have had that problem with my EFI before. You should not drain the gas for storage. I got mine going by using the gas in the spark plug method several times, finally it took off and ran.
