'91 1500 SE - Fuel system.....

So, spring time & I want to fire up & check it all over. Ran fantastic last fall. Treated the fuel with sea foam & shut it down. This week I put the key in, checked oil & Tried to fire it up. Kinda cold, full choke & cranks over fast, no offers to fire. No smell of raw fuel, nothing. Checked the stop switch so I wont look silly. All good, no start. I pulled the fuel filter off & hung the hose from the fuel pump over the side of the bike. Key on, cranking, no fuel. Put a test wire to the fuel pump & it pumps very well.
This brings me into the world of relays I think. Book sais pull off the top bag & then remove right side bag because relay is near bottom & behind the bag. Got both bags loose but they will not come off & Im losin' my mind!!! Any help would be awesome!.

If ya cant fix it with a hammer, it's prolly lectrical

Do a test on the Bank Angle Sensor (BAS) and the side-stand switch. Both of those switches can get the symptoms you've got. There was a recall on the BAS, so check the frame below the ground location and see if there is an "X" showing that the work has been done.

Gona lose my mind tryin' to pull these trunks out of the way. The book shows 4 bolts inside the Right side bag plus I unhooked the latch hardware. Its now loose but seems to be stuck by the lower rear corner. I cannot get at these relays. Im going to now read up on bank angle sensors & see where they might be located. Book sais the bike will run with the side stand down but will not run if you put it in gear. Im guessing that a relay is suffering from corrosion because last fall it started good & ran perfect.

Did you remove the rear lower corners of the bags? And does a 91 have a fuel pump relay? Don't remember what year did away with it.

Ok, Would it be acceptable to run switchable power from another source to the fuel pump so when I turn to the run position, I get power to the fuel pump?

There are metal clips at the joints of the trim, remove those and screws are underneath.

As Dave mentions the lower rear bag corners need to come off . I always had to remove the lower shell of the top trunk as well to get the bags to come off. IIRC it has 4 phillps head screws to remove across the rear lower edge. Then the it should slide back about an inch to unhook from slide clamps is the best I can call them . There I think 3 on each side and a guide up at the front edge. Once that is off , the cables unhooked you should be able to work the bag out.

To get the corners off you have to slide the short chrome covers ( about an inch long) .... one on the side and one on the rear. Under them you find a phillps head screw as well.
