Thank you for the reply. I replaced the fuel lines and filter. Still had the same issue. Didnt check the tank for vacuum. How are these gas tanks vented any way? Not much of a mechanic but i've already learned a ton 'bout these goldwings. This is my first one and wouldnt hold idle when i got it.

The tanks vent through the cap. run in yard until it dies and remove fuel cap and see if it will restart.
