It was originally the battery I'll put money in it. It happened to me. I think when u where messing will the idle screw u probably left it too low that's why it would cut off. Just like the guy above me said keep and eye on the battery just to make sure.

I go to pull out of my complex and notice that it is sluggish when I try to give it throttle so I turn around and bring it back home. I cut it off and try to start it again and it barely starts and then cuts off and dies. Now it won't start at all. Here is what i've done to try and fix it. Battery is about 5 months old so it SHOULDN'T be the battery, but i will charge it tomorrow and see what happens. Changed spark plugs, changed fuel pump/filter, drained gas tank and refilled with gas, changed top fuel rail assembly/fuel injectors (the ones on the top part of the airbox). Now when I start it, it makes this buzzing/fast clicking noise. Idk if it's the starter or rectifier?
check for water in your gas tank...it says you tried that already...hmmm not sure then

I am having this same problem right now.. I have a battery charger and I charge the battery but it still wont start it comes a heck of a lot closer but still doesnt start and if I plug the charger back in it would take 10 or 20 minutes to recharge it again so its not holding a charge at all... should I replace my battery? or is there something else I should try before dropping the money.
