Eek New husky 501s problem

So i just got my new husky home and we took it out riding for some nice easy break in time on the west texas caliche backroads. All was well until 1 hr in we stopped to get more gas in my son's wr, And it happened. Filled the tank and turned her over and she idled for 20 seconds and died. Nothing, no starting, nada. Had to load her home in the pickup. The starter would turn and nothing. Its like it wasnt getting gas or spark. Fuel pump was running as you could hear it but no firing. Got it home and tried to fire it up in the am. Started fine but popping and coughing the whole time. After a minute or so i turned her off. Started her today as it was warmer and she fired but when shifted into neutral theres a nasty pinging noise coming from the clutch that happens whenever its engaged. Seems to be two seperate problems but we'll see soon, back to the dealer tuesday. Any ideas!

Clogged duel injector from leftover crap in the new tank would be my guess

Sounds like a bad ground to me

Whats the rule of thumb with every new bike ?? Check over EVERYTHING !!!

Symptoms sound exactly like a loose coil wire or a poor ground on the FI circuit

The problem with new bikes sometimes is who assembled them, both at the factory and at the dealer - i.e. things get over looked. WE have all done it ourselves and kick ourselves in the ass for doing it - nobody to blame but ourselves right ?? But if the factory or the dealer does this, automatically points the finger at the bike being a piece of crap - thats at least what you want the readers to sympathize by creating threads of this nature. Even if thats not your point at all, there are hordes of people waiting to jump on that bandwagon if you give them that kind of bait.

I know its a bum deal, new bike and all, you expect it to be perfect. And for that I feel your pain. But Im sure its just something simple and you'll be back roosting your son in no time at all

Next post from you I will expect to hear that the problem had a simple remedy and that the bike is phenomenally awesome !!!

That is exactly what i hope for. Im actually more concerned about the clutch sounds. I hope to post exactly what i did with my strange
Problem with my ninja 1000. Kawi owned it fixed it and bought my loyalty for a long long time with how well they did. I hope to say the same on this. Love the bike though. I have 12 others so im not hurting for a ride though.

It does sound like a clogged fuel filter and/or injector. Did you try back flushing the filter or changing it on the trail? Hope it's something simple, keep us updated as to what you find out, it might save one of us some heartburn!
Those DDS clutches do make a funny noise, maybe it's normal.

update

so i'm gonna go with bad fuel. the bike fired right up for the dealer and they spent the week riding it and going over it and found nothing. it runs great now so i'll chalk it up to bad gas that sat in the tank for a few months unless it pops up again. man i do love this bike. gonna roost it out all weekend and hopefully all is good.

does it have an evaporation canister? I know on other bikes the charcoal canister can get raw fuel in them when the tank is too full or filled too quickly... makes em run like crap

New bike:

Tell the dealer NOT to put fuel in the bike, or just enough for them to check it out.

Get home.

Dump fuel out.

Flush out tank with technical grade alcohol X2.

Optional: remove tank pump and replace filter

Replace in line filter.

Replace everything, fill tank up with fresh gas.

Ride.

Enjoy.
