Yeah charged it yesterday morning to a full charge at 2 tried it again and same thing occurred not cranking.  The one thing he did was the line from the fuel tank was rubber and it was deteriorating and he found it in the carbs but he changed it and cleaned them out. But it started there. So that's why I'm just confused. I took the plugs out yesterday and I could smell gas on them for sure

I am telling you that you don't know what cold is! Us folks up north are freezing our asses off!!! Below zero temps, snow and just downright miserable.

Are you trying to gas it before you start it up? Kind of like we used to do on the old bikes? That could be an issue. I would still check out all I have already said. Sometimes what seem like little things get overlooked. You don't have to be an electrician to check connections. Just check to see that all the connectors are pushed all the way in and bolts and nuts are tight. Make sure the battery has a full charge. Have I not stressed this enough? MAKE SURE THE BATTERY IS AT FULL CHARGE. I am not trying to seem angry with you; 99% of the time, it is these simple things that cause these issues.

Worse comes to worse; Spray some quick start in the carbs. If it fires and runs until it evaporates, it is a fuel system issue.

It is possible. Is also possible that your guy might have forgotten to tighten a wire or some other connection. These things happen sometime.
Make sure the battery is fully charged and check all connections and grounds. Should fire right up!

Cold.? LMAO!!!! In the negatives here in Montana (-24 degrees).
Not sure what other switches you are turning on besides the main ignition switch and hitting the start button? If you are turning on fans or other accessories; There is no need for that. Make sure the battery is fully charged. I am assuming the battery is good. These things don't like a low battery for any reason! Double check the ground wires and make sure they are tight and have good ground to clean metal. Double check all the connections, splices, etc... and make sure they are tight.

So I had some work done on my car this past week. I picked it up Wednesday night the guy did start it for me and it ran like it had always done. Well Thursday night I get home and I want to hear the great sound of a race car, mind you I have it inside an enclosed trailer here in Raleigh North Carolina so it was about 55- 60 degrees all day long. So I go out mind you he does this for a living he owns 9 legends and works on them consistently. So I have a brand new wiring harness and new plugs and a cleaned out carburetor. I proceed to start the car and it wont turn over. I turn all the switches off wait 2-3 mins and try again and again. All it is doing is backfiring and not starting. Now I'm new to the Legends and have not much experience with these cars, what am I doing wrong. I mean obviously when I picked it up it started and the next day it would not. Is it because its to cold been told they don't start in the cold.  Any help will be great to this new driver who loves this sport and this division.

Thanks
