Just got home from work today and tinkered with the bike. I found that the "ON" gas hose from the tank is actually too short and was being slightly pinched from the gas tank mounting plate you must take off to change the airfilter. I switched to "RESERVE" to see if it worked and she started right up. Unsure about what to do with the "ON" gas hose. May have to grind a slot in the mounting plate.
I really thought I &$*#ed something up! Thanks for the reply. Sorry for my noobness.
