Fuel Pressure Issue

Question for Fix My Hog My bike won’t start. It’s fuel injected and has new fuel lines and the fuel pump is working. The bike sat for 6 months but ran before. It has only 6,000 miles on it. Like I said the bike sat for 6 months. The battery went dead so I bought a new battery and put it in but the bike would not start. It gets spark but it is not getting fuel. I can spray gasoline down the throttle body and the bike will fire. Please help

    I’m thinking that since it sat so long and battery was dead maybe the security system armed itself and you might have to disarm it? Just a thought!

    I have an issue similar to that, my bike starts bur the rear cylinder is not getting fuel, exhaust is cold while front cylinder is hot. Did compression test front cylinder was 92 psi and rear cylinder 94 psi, have good spark on both plugs, replaced fuel pump, injector pressure regulator, all filters and hoses in gas tank. this is on a 2005 Road king FLHRCI checked codes and nothing there. any advise would be greatly appreciated.
