This bike was running great until it wasn't. Out for a trail ride and stopped to rest. Shut the engine off with the key, when I went to start it back up it would not start. Everything came on like normal and the engine would turn over. You can hear the fuel pump running and you eventually smell fuel.

One year later, new cdi, new stator and it is still not running. Any ideas would be great!
