Hey Broussard. Anything is theoretically possible with the right facts and statistics being tweaked.
Have you pulled off the air filter to see if it is over-soaked? Did you follow the instructions? I'm sure you did but just wondering.
Have you checked to see if you may have disconnected or pulled something loose and it isn't re-connected?
Did you check to see if your fuel tap is working properly or is in the right position?
If you want to clean out your carb bowl to see if you got too much contamination just use the drain and a small plastic container until the fuel comes out clean. If there was contamination use SeaFoam as per its instructions.
There are a various no-start reasons and I'm just offering a few off-hand things to do or check since I assume based on your post that the bike must have been running and all you did was perform an air filter servicing. Post up if you find anything else out. Wish you success.
