Hey guys,

I was out riding tonight and while riding (with over half a tank of fuel left) my bike spudered and died. It would turn over and sounded like it wanted to re-fire but felt like there wasn't any fuel getting there. While I waited for a buddy to come and rescue me, I checked to see if anything had come disconnected; everything looked OK. Also, it sounds like the fuel pump is working. Could something be plugged?
Has anyone encountered similar problems? My waaranty ran out a couple of months ago so I hope to fix this on my own, if possible.
I'll probably try to pull the filter and pump off this weekend to see if there's fuel getting there.
Any suggestions welcome remembering I'm handy, but no mechanic.
Thanks,

well first thing i would check for spark and fuel. you can get one of those spark tester and hook up to your ignition wire and see if you are getting any spark. Then i would go for the fuel pressure test next. if those are ok then more test might be needed like compression etc... good luck.

Ya, I chucked the spuds and still have the problem.
I've heard plenty of guys have had this "fuel connector problem."
Can u fill me in on the particulars? Can I fix it or does it have to go to get fixed?
Many thanks,
