01 ZR800 won't start after tank change
I just replaced the seat/tank on my sons 01 ZR800 due to a ripped seat. It ran fine all the years we have had it. We had it "summerized" as we usually due and get it ready for winter as we usually do as well. Oil, fresh gas, grease zerks, new plugs etc.
After the tank change I cant get the sled to start. I read about priming the fuel system and still nothing.
Here is what I have done:
-Blew air into gas tank from vent tube with gas cap on. I hold it there and even pinch the tube to keep it pressurized.
-put gas in each cylinder through spark plug holes
-put gas into carbs through carb bowl vent tubes
It runs until the gas is used up that i put in the cylinders and carbs.
What else should I be doing or what am I doing wrong?
