2016 800 wont start

Hi Everyone I am hoping I can get some help. This sounds like a common issue with these sleds so I hope people know how to fix it. The first time my sled would not start it sat in the trailer when it was -25F over night. I was able to get it to start by holding the throttle wide open and pulled and it finally went. Now this time 1 week later I was up in the back country shut it off to let it cool down and it would not start again, finally it went, nothing seemed to make a difference throttle wide open with key and kill switch on or off. About an hour later we had to cut a pretty good side hill I was about 6-7 rpms and I accidentally hit the kill switch. It would not start we sat there for over an hour pulling like crazy, playing with the throttle, kill switch and key but NOTHING worked. We finally pulled a plug had spark and it was bone dry! so we put some gas down the cylinder and boom she fired right up. It ran ok the rest of the day had a weird sputter in the mid range but it got me home. So I pulled it in the shop put it on the stand reved it up to 6500 rpm and shut the kill switch off while holding the throttle and what do you know it wont start again and the cylinders are bone dry of fuel and no matter how many times you pull on her it wont inject fuel so WTF!! Its a brand new sled only has 270 miles on it. I am thinking either TSS, TPS, or a bad ECU any help would be greatly appreciated. I have 4 2008-2010 M8 and in over 10,000 miles on two of the sleds I never had and issues like this. I have ran a bottle of heet through it so there should be no water in the system I only run 91 ethanol free fuel

Brand new sled with 270 miles? Sounds like a warranty issue let the stealership figure it out.

Yup and make it very clear how you were left stranded in the middle of no where till it started. Yea I'd let them fix it and make sure they tell you what it is so you can see if there is an easy bush fix if it ever happens again.

Hold the throttle down to half way while pulling the starter cord.

We stopped to eat and noticed other riders coming in with snow jammed in their helmets, jackets and gloves. They had snow everywhere. We looked out the door and couldn't see across the street. Six inches of snow fell while we ate a few burgers. That was the start of a great ride.

My 13 you had to crack the throttle to start it, my 16 isn't as bad but every now and again I have to crack the throttle. Yours sounds like a fuel delivery issue if it fired after you poured gas down the cylinder. Possibly a bad pump? Losing prime?
