No gas coming out of KLR 2008 tank.
New to this forum and hope someone can help. I have 2008 KLR and pulled the gas tank off it to put in a new spark plug. As it turns out I did not have the correct socket for the spark plug so skipped (temporarily) replacing the plug and just put the tank back on.
I put the choke on and tried to start the bike after putting the tank back on. It did start fine, and ran for about 5 or 6 seconds then stopped. Since then I can not get it started again. It turns over well. It seems to not be getting gas.
I opened the drain screw on the carb and no gas comes out. I detached the gas line from the petcock on the tank and no gas comes out of the petcock at all. Regardless if it is set to 'on' or 'reserve'. I have filled the gas tank to the top still no gas coming out of the petcock. I removed the petcock assembly from the tank and it looks clean and functional.
What am I doing wrong ? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
