Thanks for looking! I had my 98 Yamaha GP800 out last weekend with no problems. I took it out a few days ago and (my bad) launched it without the plug in it, but realized it quickly and it "only" took on a couple inches of water. I drained it and played around trying to start it, pulling the plugs and reinstalling them many times. It has good spark at the plugs, but it hasn't fired even once. It's getting fuel, and I haven't dug into it yet, and I don't understand why it won't fire if there's spark and fuel in the cylinders. Any suggestions as to what's preventing ignition?

It's actually not getting fuel to the carbs. It does start with starter fluid. The fuel lines are clear up to the carbs. I removed the pickup in the gas tank and the exhaust pipe that sits on top of the carbs. Would you guess it's the fuel pump(s)? Does each carb have a fuel pump or is there one? Whatever the problem, it's caused no fuel to enter either carb. Any suggestions? Thanks!
