Are you talking about the false tank or the actual fuel tank under the seat? Is everything back as it should be? Is the kill switch on the bars in the run position?

We are going to need more info from you to be of any real help. What were you fixing on your bike? Do you have spark? Oh so many questions........ 8-)

I agree, too many questions and not enough information. What was broken? Too remove the tank you have to pull the seat, side covers, upper shell, dash and gauges. Only advice I can give is back up again and keep taking it apart until you find what you forgot to plug in.

Yeah I know that's how many are on the actual tank. You had to remove a ton of stuff before you got to that though. You had to unplug the radio, the dash switches, the dash cluster etc, etc. If you went that far to paint it you must have removed the front fairings as well. Coils out and everything there? If it's cranking but won't fire maybe you have the coils plugged in wrong.
