the bike had been sitting for a few weeks. the battery had died so i replaced that, the tank was empty so i put some in. i tried starting it for ten minutes or so with mixed results... (i suspect on of my coils is wiggy which i'm sure didn't help it would occasionally start but i would have to keep the rpms above 2k but below 5k or it would die. an hour later i went outside and it started right up, no problems. I guess the gas just needed to run through the bike for a while. so moot point now i guess. thanks for the info anyways guys.
