Hey all. I just bought my first bike, A V Star 1100, and I'm in the process of fixing it to ride. I fixed a few things so far but now I'm kind of stuck. the bike cranks but won't start, it might for a second then cut right back off. I believe its a fuel issue because i don't see much fuel inside the fuel filter. i hear what i think is the fuel pump when i turn the key but doesn't look like its really pulling anything. i was thinking of just buying a new fuel pump but before i do that i want to eliminate any other possible reasons. so when i bought the bike i noticed there was this random wire that was burned off and not plugged into anything. I was wondering what it was for and could it have anything to do with my problem. Thanks.
P.S. I'm no mechanic but i know the basics
