My 2008 ltr-450 wont start. It ran fine when i parked it 2 months ago. And when i tried to start it last week
it didnt start up did fire a cuple of times but then it kinda flooded it self wich i expected as the
temperature was -5c (41F). so i pretty much tried starting untill battery was dead and
after that we tried bumb starting it while towing it behind a car still nothing but
a cuple of laud bangs from exhaust. after this i let it sit in a warm garage for a day
with the spark plug removed and yes the plug had alot of gas on it.
So the next day i throw a new plug in it but still wont start.
Only some realy loud bangs from exhaust and i mean like
ear damaging high bangs
Checked spark, has spark but it doesnt seem to get fuel because
now the sparkplug wont get wet after a lot of cranking so i tried
ether but wont even start on that ether only thing i got on
ether was a backfire up in the air box wich seems realy
weird to me as i thought it was a fuel problem i had now
but it seems like some problem with ignition timing and
I dont work on a lot of small engines like this
but if there is spark should it not fire atleast a cupple of times
on ether?
The fuel pump is working
no broken fuses
Is it posible i fried the ecu from to much cranking?
Please help!

Click the key into run and see if you are getting fuel out of the fuel line. It's been so long since I had my 450 but I think it would run and squirt out some fuel and tell you if there is a blockage. Wouldn't hurt changing out the lines and cleaning the tank.
