I recently purchased a 1998 xl 760. I put it in the water and it fired right up. Like an idiot, i forgot to turn the gas on and the red warning light began to flash then it stalled. I then turned the gas on and tried to start it again, but the battery died. Charged the battery when i got home and tried again, it rolls over but will not fire. I do have spark, I checked that. I must not be getting any fuel. Is there a fuel primer that I dont know about? Any help would be appriciated.

Not sure about the xl 760 but i have a 1998 xl1200 that did the same thing and I had to pour a small amount of permix gas into the carb to get it to start and reprime the carb. Also after it sat for a couple days I would have to do the same thing every time so I just took the chock off and installed a primer pump sloved the problem. Hope this helps
