Post Zuma won't start
So I was riding WOT into the wind and cruising at about 55. I have the 155 BBK and it does pretty good into the wind, but it was full throttle for probably 20 minutes. Power suddenly cut out, but I didn't hear any particular noises when that happened, of course it windy so maybe I didn't hear it. Any thoughts on where to start trouble shooting? Here is a video on youtube of it cranking but not starting. I thought I would take off the valve covers and peek in there. Oil and gas level good. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aa3IKaoOPd8

Spray some starter fluid into the intake with the fir filter removed. It should sputter if you have a fuel issue.

I'd start with a compression test since this isn't a stock motor.

Thanks for the tips. I ordered a new fuel pump. I'll start there and proceed as needed.
