So long story short, I absolutely swamped the crap out of my Kodiak. Completely sunk it in the creek and flipped upside down.
I’ve drained the oil, transmission, air box, gas tank, replaced all fuses, spark plug. Turn the engine over with no plug in it to get the remaining water out too.
Now when I go to fire it up, it only turns over and won’t start.
I know my battery is good, had it charged and tested. Im getting spark for sure too, turned it over with the plug out and saw it produce spark.
I believe my problem is the fuel pump.
I do not hear it prime when I turn the key to the on position.
Any ideas why my fuel pump isn’t working now.
It would prime when I first pulled it out of the creek and had it in my garage.
I did take the gas tank off to clean it. Maybe I messed something up then?
All my connections are good and even cleaned them off before reconnecting.
Trying to avoid the dealership here

Do you have voltage on the plug for the fuel pump when you turn it on?

Have you checked the voltages on the fuel pump relay near the battery?

I have not done that yet. I’ll check when I get home from work today.
So it’s either the plug may be bad or my fuse relay??

It is really hard to tell. The ECM controlls the power to the fuel pump, but if the fuel pump isn't turning on then it may be a voltage issue and those are the areas that I would check first.

Here is what the trouble shooting manual says to check

I bought a Kodiak that was swamped and the tank filter sock was clogged.
Would that cause it not to prime though?
I replaced the fuse relay, left handlebar switch and it still will not prime.
I’m going to test my fuel pump next to see if it is getting power but I’m afraid I fried my ECU
