Hi Chris, check the electrical connector for the tank is joined together properly. They can loosen when the bike is knocked down.

I agree with Basic2. It does sound absolutely typical of a loose/disconnected tank connector. You'll find it forward-left of the tank next to the tank fuel lines.

Have you checked the fuel pump damper? There are many stories about ethanol in gasoline that turns the rubber damper to muck causing bits to be sucked into the pump. I should know because I replaced my pump, screen and damper during the winter because of exactly that. It took about a dozen non-starts and stalls while riding to force me to take the fuel pump out to examine and all the articles I read matched exactly what I saw on my pump.

Moving forward now that I replaced everything, the advise I will follow is to check the condition of the damper each season and replace if suspected

Good luck 

Sunny

The pump is seated in the damper and the entire assembly is clipped on the front left quadrant of your tank. One clip front and one back squeeze together will pull the pump, damper and filter screen out. The filter screen is a push fit on the black rubber of the damper and you may see bits of black in the screen.

Good luck
