99 aero 1100 sputtered and died, wont restart. FIXED!!!

Ok guy, I'm searching as we speak learning all I can. But here's what I have so far.

My buddy had a friend rode down from illinois with his 1100. Had brand new exhaust, new winshield, newseats etc. He (the friend, not my buddy) sounded to me more like the type that belongs on that other site. So I can say for sure what all work was done. My buddy is a goldwing guy so he's not familar with aeros either.

The bike was serviced by honda before it died, I think before his trip down here. My buddy says it sputtered and died. They tinkered with it and couldn't get it going. The only fix I know they tried was replacing fuel with with a car filter.

I asked him about the basics, petcock and fuel filter goin the right direction. I haven't seen it myslf yet, I'm going Thursday to get it running. Just want to get all the info about these bikes that I can.

My plan is to bypass the filter and see if it starts. Then bypass the fuel pump and see if it starts on gravity feed. After thoroughly cleaning and checking the carbs of course.

So just start tossing ideas out there and the reasons behind em and ill check out as I go. Ill post updates after Thursday.

Like I said its a 99 aero 1100.

Check the tank vent line.. And fuel pump.. Make sure no vacuum lines have cracked or popped of also oil level and the oil pressure sensor. New bikes are getting more and more engine safty features like modern cars

More info...Will it turn over at all? Will it turn over but not start?

If not, check the run/stop switch, pull off and clean. Check the ground on the battery, if not turning over this should be the first item to check. Side stand safety switch. Check wires for clutch safety switch.

Pull plugs to see if it is getting any spark. While you have them does it appear the are wet from fuel?

That's all I got for now.
