    1998 750 xi sport not starting.

    Just rebuilt a 750 xi sport with 0.5 over pistons. Previous owner had overheated due to clogging intake. Replaced the shelled piston and honed the cylinders. Good compression. I'm getting fuel at least thru the new fuel lines in & fuel filter. I'm getting spark, and motor will start if i put gas in the carbs, I cleaned the carbs out very well, found a lot of junk in them. Is there something I'm missing? I've killed the battery 2x trying to start this silly thing. She looks almost brand new, and I'm really looking forward to using her this summer.

    Internal fuel filters clear? Perhaps you got the diaphragm and gasket swapped.

    The fuel lines were swapped at the fuel chamber up under the hull. That seemed to help
