Fuel pump?

I own a 2001 Suzuki volusia and had a spark plug go out the other day and went a head and replaced them both, but when I got everything back together it's started for a few seconds and killed right over. Ever since then it won't start. I've checked to make sure there wasn't a gap in the spark plugs and everyone has told me fuel pump. Any info would be great guys.

A gap in the spark plugs is necessary.

😳😳....
Like Joe said. There should be a gap, if there is no gap then you will not have a spark.
You need the proper gap as well.
.031-.035 inches is the proper gap.

If you took your fuel tank off to get access to your spark plugs you probably removed the vacuum line off your petcock right next to the fuel line, without vacuum your fuel won't flow
