Ok, so I pulled the petcock off my tank. I have a 2003 shadow spirit 750. I including 2 pictures also (assuming I did it correctly). So at this point there is no blockage in the actual pick-up tube or reserve setting. But when I did remove the valve the screen seemed to be collapsed around the pick-up tube. Now my question is, could that be enough to starve my bike of fuel. I also had a little debris and dirt around the screen. Now I have no rust in the tank whatsoever. But what could I do to get any debris out of the tank. Any suggestions would be helpful. Also as far as the pick-up screen, I am assuming I should replace it (correct me if I'm wrong) but I would assume that the screen collapsing on itself and the little bit of debris in the tank would be the cause of the bike dying on me while riding. Now when I say debris, it almost looks like little pieces of lint and fine dirt.
