MCat 800 EFI 2002 Won't Start

Hey guys,
I am running out of ideas.
My sled started and run up on the trailer today but it was hard starting. Pulled it into town and put fuel in it as it was about out. Now it won't start. Plugs almost seem dry.
I have tried disconnecting the kill switch and have good spark either way.
Only way it will run is if I put some fuel down the cylinder then it will run until that is gone.
I watched the bottom of the ECU and it just tried to flash on the pull. What direction can I go to get this thing up and running again.

start with the easy stuff, filter, lines, look for any ice that might be in there if you got a shot of water last season and froze up, if you have a friend with a heated garage see if you can bring it in and up to temp, it happend to a buddies crossfire last year, wouldnt start till it thawed out, wouldnt get fuel.

tank almost empty for how long. The EFI pumps can dry out if left in an empty tank for extended periods of time. In any case, unhook the pump connector by the console at the steering post and put 12V on it and try to start the sled.

I have the same problem, my sled started all time like a charm, but one day the sled would not make an effort. Theres lots of spark, is getting gas, compression, but will not make an effort. Please help
