As you now know, just because the rubber boot looks good doesn't mean the connection is good as indicated in post # 18..

Glad you are up and running....!

I am not as smart (knowledgeable) as some others but I am working on getting there....
Dave is the most detailed poster on our site. My strength is the hammer. Did you pound the plug in to the ECM? !

Dave is being low key here, I value his in-depth analysis of the wiring problems on these bikes.

Captntom Smart enough in this case. Now I'm looking to replace the submersible fuel line that comes off fuel pump in tank. Mine is looking old. If it's already on the forums I apologize.
Thanks again

Rickf1985 It has always been my experience (very looong experience) that when something is running and you work on it to make it run better and find it will no longer run at all that you always need to immediately go back over the work you JUST performed because you probably did something wrong or you pulled something apart. Your problem is always going to lie in the area that you were working. This work ethic has served me quite well in 40 plus years of wrenching and I have found many times where I either missed a connection or I pulled another, unrelated one, apart in the process of fixing the first problem. If you go off on a completely new route trying to find a new problem that was not there before you can end up with multiple problems and you will be chasing your tail for days or weeks.
I am far from an expert on these bikes so I don't have anything to offer here other than when working on my own I see plenty of opportunity to accidentally pull off a line or wire since they are all jammed in tight. Just something to thank about.

There is a chance he might find spark...


But I have been wrong before.....wouldn't be the first time....
Just a guess on my part Dave. Based on it won't run even if he hot wires the pump. ..

It was a problem where the rubber cover was seated good but the Yellow connector was not seated all the way. If I recall, in that case it would not even start (more that no output for fuel).

I need to disappear for a while................!!!!

If the auto fuel shut-off valve is working good (reference post # 13), then you probably have an ECM issue.....!

Or could be a connector issue at the ECM (one large connector).....!
