Hello Everyone,
1993 Sportster 883.
Bike ran fine before winter. I put winterizing fluid in the tank before winter. Recently, the bike won't start, but it did inject fuel. Now it won't even inject. bettey is good. fuel is running from the tank to carborator.
anyone have anything?

If gas is getting to the carb, but the carb won't spray fuel by twisting the throttle, then the the accelerator pump diaphram is bad. (3 screwed cover on the right of the carb, towards the front of the bike, under the carb)

Placing winterizing fluid in the tank is not enough and it needs to be run into the carb as well. A blocked pilot jet could produce the same situation as well.

That, or you're mistaken and there's no gas getting to the carb, as the diaphram for the petcock is bad, or the vacuum line that actuates if fell off.....
