    No expert but a couple of things I would check

    1, fuel level in tank
    2, change fuel filter/water separator
    3, filter on carb

    you didn't mention the year if an older version maybe having issues with deterioration of fuel components related to ethanol

    Did you just change the fuel filter? If yes, did you fill the new filter with gas before installing it?

    You should have two fuel pumps, one may be working while the other one not. Also, make sure the red fuses on the risers have not tripped.

    According to the first post, it is carbureted.

    ... ooops.

    Try a jerry can with fresh gas to see if there isn't a restriction in the fuel pickup.
