I sent my bike to be painted and when it came back it wouldn't run. I sent it to a shop and they check the fuel system and couldn't find anything wrong with the fuel filter,fuel pump,gas tank or fuel lines so now I'm completely loss on what I should do or what to look for, If theres anyone who knows please help,Any suggestion are helpfull !!! Oh!! If I start the bike it will Idle but when I go to give it gas it boggs out!

Does it bogg out even when it's at optimal operating temperature? Might be running too lean or rich... But unless the paint shop somehow screwed with it, I don't see how that would happen...

Hmmmm

Well when I tryed to ride it when I first picked it up from the paint it ran for a mile before it finally died out, I tryed to restart it which it did but soon as I give it gas it would try to bogg out but if I let the throttle go it would stop trying to bogg out,It would sit there and idle. Friday it got a new fuel pump,fuel lines & fuel filter and after replacing these things it still wont run.

only Idle

This sounds silly...but! I had an ATV that I put outerwears on for the air filter intake...keeps dust, water everythig out...I followed a car at 35+MPH for about a mile and then pulled into my farmer friends driveway and we chatted, then oin hte way home the thing just died. I had plenty of gas, and I could smell it. 90+Degrees out and I couldn't get it to do anything more than idle or it would die. I pushed it home, took a shower and then thohght about it over a cool glass of tea...then went outside pulled the seat and looked at the airfilter, it was absolutely clean and you could see light through it! so as I'm changing plugs I start it and it runs great! I then put the outerwear back on the intake to the airbox and put the seat on and it won't start. ARGHHHH! So I take the seat off remove the airbox lid...then for some reason looked at eht outerwear and it was brown on top insteasd of dark black...I went to the iar compressor in the barn and blew it clean from inside to outside then blew off the outside then from inside to outside again...reinstalled everything...and it ran like new again...long story..check your airfilter and airbox, even your throttle linkage. A little paint even if it had some solvent wiped on it to make it look clean...could still be the culprit...Change your plugs too. They may have been a litle rough with your bike...other than that look for crimped fuel lines under the tank and around inside the fairing...even a lose hose clamp will cause the system to suck air before fuel...
