  • 2009 1700 Silverado won’t run

    My bike has been sitting for almost 2 years (multiple back surgeries). Now it won’t run. It cranks but won’t run. Starter fluid gets it running but it doesn’t want to keep going. I added fresh gas but it doesn’t sound like the fuel pump is sending fuel. Could there be a blockage or build up preventing fuel moving? Is there a quick fix?

    You could remove the line to check I am thinking you need a carb rebuild. Pretty simple job.

    Edit: Wait isn't that fuel injected? SCRATCH what I just said!

      Drain the tank and add fresh gas.

    It’s FI. Could the injectors be plugged?

      What do you run for fuel? Do you run straight gas or is it an ethanol blend? If it's the latter it doesn't store very well and could cause issues. I presume no fuel stabilizers were added when the bike was last running?

        The fuel you left in it for 2 years has turned to gel and has gummed up the system. Remove the tank and clean it thoroughly. Clean the fuel lines as much as you can and put it back together with at least 1 oz of techron plus concentrate injector cleaner per gallon. Also have your battery load tested to make sure it is good. Just because it has 12 volts doesn't mean that it's good, it needs to hold its voltage when cranking. Don't overthink this, you'll hurt the team! It has been sitting for 2 years so the only thing that has gone bad would be the fuel. Change the oil also once you get it running to either a 10-40 or 20-50 synthetic motor oil for motorcycles like amsoil or mobile 1.

          Also if it has an aftermarket fuel processor, disconnect that and just run the stock ECU processor regardless of your intake or exhaust modifications.
