wont start after kleen mod

i flipped the reed valves over, replaced the covers and ran a hose to connect the 2 valve covers since i removed the solenoid. removed the canister and all hoses. plugged the 2 nipples at the top of the tank and the nipple from in between throttle body 2 and 3(i believe). also plugged the hole at the top of the throttle body cover.

i started the bike up and it died 5 seconds later. and now it just cranks over. did i miss something??

Did you re-connect the fuel pump connector when you put the tank back on?
Where you going off BDs "How to"?

Sounds like you may have plugged a vent line from the tank that shoudn't have been plugged
you said you removed a canister so I'm assuming a cali bike.

Did you use BD's how to? very good write up.

To remove the charcoal canister (and related hardware), you’ll need the following:
(2) 1/8th vacuum caps (throttle body lines)
(1) 3/16th vacuum cap for the red tank inlet (charcoal canister/fuel tank feed – 1/4th caps may be applicable)
(1) suitable hose (perferably the hose with a blue stripe) connected to the blue tank inlet nipple and routed inside the RH frame rail and across the backside of the throttle bodies, then insert a 'T' fitting into it so that the OEM tank vent hose & overflow hose can be connected into the other 2 ends of the 'T' fitting so the tank vents properly.

Was just responding real fast but yeah, probably would have thrown an F1 light if you missed connecting that connector. Hopefully since you used BDs instructions he can chime in and evaluate your mod.

If you can think of anything or add anything that you did or did not do that might be in question or that was not mentioned that may help as well.

The way I read it, only the red vent on tank gets capped and you said in 1st post that you capped 2 nipples on the tank.
