I was on a group ride for the 9-11 memorial, I was a road captain, so I was riding hard. We made a left turn and in about 100 feet, it felt like I wasn’t getting any fuel and my bike just quit. She had power, and would crank, but no start. The fuel pump tested good but I noticed something when removing the hose. After watching several videos on removing the tank, it appeared to me that fuel would not come out of the fuel line if the ignition was off, or, just a little would but it would stop. On mine, the fuel kept pouring. That said, when I cranked her over, the fuel shot out, telling me the pump was working. Could the pump still be bad? What should I check next to diagnose the problem?

Sounds like a restriction in the system between the tank and engine.

I decided to check spark and it appears to be very weak. If my assumptions are correct, wouldn't the spark be very bright white and not a weak orange spark?
