Ok, I'm new to cycling so I'm probably missing the simple answer needed.
I started my 1300C with no problems this morning (bike in neutral, petcock in on position, choke all the way in) the bike ran for a minute or two while I was getting ready to ride, it then stalled on me.

I tried to start it up again and it would not turn over. I then proceeded to pull the choke out and try to start it - probably flooding the tank, still wouldn't start. I left it for 15 min or so and tried again, choke all the way in this time, held the throttle while trying to start it and still nothing.

My very limited knowledge consists of a MSF class, please help.

When you tried to start it with the choke, did it start at all? Also, are you sure you have plenty of gas in the tank?
