I have pulled your post out of the thread that you put it in, as your post will be "hiJacking" the other thread.... and that causes confusion as to what our guru's are answering to.

Much better to have your own thread, devoted to your own problem. That way you get devoted attention to just your bike alone.

Hope you get your issue straightened out soon.

I doubt that its fuel delivery related as when I forget to open the petcock I get about two blocks before it slowly dies.

From another thread long ago:
unionjk:
Pull the fuel line after the pump attach it to an elevated jug, now turn on the ignition key till the pump runs. Do you get good gas pumping, or does the pump seize up?

The Honda Accord pump from your local auto parts storewill make a good replacement pump for a lot less money, or so I am told, but you need to test the pump first.

SilverDave:
If your Fuel pump passes " Union jk's " test ...then I would suspect the so called fuel pump "relay". The GoldWing was one of the first motorcycles to actually use a fuel pump, and associated relay .

There is a comprehensive test for both the fuel pump, and for this relay, in the Clymer manual .

This relay device is well hidden , under the false tank, and has 4 features :

a) Its very hard to get to.

b) It controls the pulse of the fuel pump with throttle setting... more throttle.. higher pulse rate. (One of its wires goes to the coil circuit, to get this pulse frequency).

c) It also appears to be a " safety " to shut the fuel pump OFF when engine is not running .

d) It has a strange plug , with three prongs,in a 4 pronged plug and rather fine wires .

It was "Replaced" by Honda several years ago . The newer relays from Mother Honda will not fit, unless you re-wire the other end of the three wires, as well, to an equally " strange " matching plug.

If this relay is not working, or working poorly, then the fuel pump will also not pulse very well, and the bike will appear to be starving for fuel.

Without re-wiring , your best bet is to search for this older style relay at a qualified Goldwing wrecker, and test it to see if it wrks, before installing

rodvaspa:
Jump 12 volts straight to it. If the bike runs like that it is probably the relay. Won't do any damage in the short run.
I doubt that its fuel delivery related as when I forget to open the petcock I get about two blocks before it slowly dies.
Why I have a big yellow rubber former key fob I cleared of writing and wrote simply "FUEL" on it and hung it with a key loop up on the handle bars near the key. It looks weird maybe, flops around occasionally, but it reminds me as the shut off point when leaving work is mid left turn across traffic .....
..... :surprise:

That is not how you test the fuel pump relay. You'll need to get at the wire plug for the pump relay and jump 2 of the wires in the plug together. I cannot recall the color wires right now, so get the manual. The manual does this troubleshoot jumping wire sequence thoroughly, they do not use a meter to test the relay.
The fuel pump relay is found under the coil pack, and the coil pack is under the false cover. There are 2 relays found there, and one of them is the fuel pump relay. Getting to the relay location takes some time.

Got my replace pump from US ( used)
Plug it on to its place, put rxtra gas in the tank but nothing happened.
Disconnected the fuel line that feeds the carbs...put an extra line No sign of gas coming out.
When I turn the ign key on i feel a click on the pump.....
Any suggestions
Thanks for your time
