Hey guys!!

New to the site.

I'm currently working on a 2000 GP800. The motor was rebuilt about 1 1/2 years ago. I'm not sure how many hours are on the rebuild, but the hour meter reads 220. I've checked both cylinders, and they both seem to be in good shape (one cylinder at 118 psi, the other at 120)

The thing won't start. The plugs look good. When I add gas to the cylinders through the plug holes and hit the button, it will start, but once that gas is gone it quickly cuts off. So it has spark.

Seems to be a fuel issue. The tank is pressurizing as it should, and the fuel filter is filling up. I even took the fuel filter out and used a vacuum hose connector to bypass it, without luck. Are we looking at a carburetor screen issue here? Maybe the fuel selector switch?

Im just trying to avoid tearing the thing apart to get at the carbs if it isnt necessary.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys! :)
