Smart enough in this case. Now I'm looking to replace the submersible fuel line that comes off fuel pump in tank. Mine is looking old. If it's already on the forums I apologize.

Glad you are up and running....!
I am not as smart (knowledgeable) as some others but I am working on getting there....

First of all "You guys are AWESOME!" It's up and running. The rubber boot on ECM was fine to look at but the yellow connector was not seated inside. I seated it, hit the key and WOOM! I couldn't have done it without the fine help I received from this sight.

It has always been my experience (very looong experience) that when something is running and you work on it to make it run better and find it will no longer run at all that you always need to immediately go back over the work you JUST performed because you probably did something wrong or you pulled something apart. Your problem is always going to lie in the area that you were working. This work ethic has served me quite well in 40 plus years of wrenching and I have found many times where I either missed a connection or I pulled another, unrelated one, apart in the process of fixing the first problem. If you go off on a completely new route trying to find a new problem that was not there before you can end up with multiple problems and you will be chasing your tail for days or weeks.
I am far from an expert on these bikes so I don't have anything to offer here other than when working on my own I see plenty of opportunity to accidentally pull off a line or wire since they are all jammed in tight. Just something to thank about.

I do recall a member who had issues and it turned out the ECM plug looked good but wasn't quite pushed home. I guess it looked good but just wasn't quite contacting the ECM.

There was an issue a while back where there was no output from the ECM to the fuel pump. When power jumped to the fuel pump it would start and run good.
It was a bad transistor in the ECM. There was no ignition issue.
I sent Capt the thread for that issue....just in case he might need it....!
There is a chance he might find spark...
But I have been wrong before.....wouldn't be the first time....
