Customer Question

today i overfilled (spilled gas everywhere) my gas tank and when i left the station the bike stalled, i restarted it and it stalled again, according to the lady at Harely she said i probably had vapor lock, and needed to siphon out the extra gas. Got my bike back to work and siphoned out about 1/4 of a gallon, (got the gas below the neck line) stated up the bike and it's still sputtering and stalling (but doesnt completely die.) Do you know what is wrong?
