Does anyone know why my 09 stratoliner is flooding out? I changed the battery , plugs, and air filter and pressure checked fuel pump, has anybody else had this problem and if so what could it be?

When you are starting you are using zero throttle right?

disregard i saw you changed the air filter..

Is it flooding or just stalling ?? You could have a failing coil or the fuel might not be turned on all the way if shut off when tank removed to do air filters..

Who did the plugs ? were they gapped before install ? I've seen new plugs installed not gapped and the gap was too big or closed right out of the box. When did this issue start ?? before the maintenance was done or after ??

What happens? Won't start? Will it run at all?
