So I got the bike out today and it refused to start
1. Checked fuel
2. Checked spark

So I was wondering if I flooded it, but it didn't seem as I did. I decided to do a little cleaning and see if anything looked amiss. I ended up loosening the return hose under the tank to see if there might be an issue with the pump. There was gas as evidenced by a few drops coming out. I plugged that back and it fired up immediately.

Is this a voodoo ritual which must be done after Weber carbs sit for the winter?

Yes

Don't know if it had something to do with the Weber, you will never know. You have to do some Voodoo rituals every spring to wake them up.
Bikes who don't need some sort of Voodoo are usually from Japan. They have no soul.

Thanks ... my voodoo must be weak as I added gas yesterday for a long rid. It backfired twice and then never fired up
