my 2005 sportsman 800 EFI was wrecked by my little brother a few years ago and i finally got the motivation to order the replacement parts recently and fix it.
prior to any replacement of parts it started and ran like a champ.
i replaced several body panels/racks/etc...all cosmetic. then i realized that the stearing rod was bent alittle, so i ordered it and just put it in today.
the process: remove front rack, remove front body panel, remove fuel tank, replace steering rod and put back together. Easy right...it was but one i got everything put back together it would not start.
normally when i turn the key on you can hear the EFI engage for a second before you start it...it is not doing that now
I took it back apart and inspected everything and seems to be in order but no luck on starting...
Any ideas are much appreciated. thanks Cole
Your in-tank pump isn't getting power. That's the "EFI" sound you usually hear for a couple seconds. I suspect you forgot to plug the 3-wire pigtail back in that is coming from the top of the tank.
