  1. Hey everyone, I've recenlty rebuilt the engine of my 2003 V11 Sport and reinstalled it back in the frame. It wouldn't start, and I realized that the fuel pump wasn't priming. I replaced the pump, and the new one primes just fine. I've also replaced the battery. The starter motor is working, as the engine is turning over. The bike has spark and seems to be getting fuel. The valves are also in spec. I've gotten it to sputter a little, but not start, and now it's not even sputtering anymore. Before I rebuilt the engine, the bike would start and run fine; I just had to get the crankshaft and conrods machined and replace the conrod bearings. I also had the timing and the engine checked out by a reputable Guzzi shop in my area, and it was greenlit to be put back in the frame. Anyone have ideas on what I can check and troubleshoot to get it running again? Thanks in advance!
