Has it been parked for a long time??
Look into the fuel what does it look like???
Petcock lever Down is Main tank, Horizontal is Off, UP is Reserve.
Vacuum required to open the petcock gas valve.
OEM vacuum hoses crack on the interior wall at the hose end.
Pull fuel hose off petcock, apply vacuum on the vacuum port, gas should flow.
Injector or vacuum pump or mouth to generate vacuum.
Several pix. https://www.vtxoa.com/cdn-cgi/image...65b3-ea8b-4b59-8e4e-8b4f207cd887-jpeg.193423/

2007 also had a petcock recall. A punch mark before or after the VIN indicates a
recall has been done.
