Hey 'jones..as it turns out my bike's FI was pooched cuz I had the headlight cowl sitting unevenly. This caused the Bank angle sensor to cut the fuel pump out. Do you need a manual?

Attach your headlight. Bank angle sensor needs to be attached for fuel pump to work.

That was the problem i was having..as soon as I levelled the headlight cowling, with the BAS attached, the fuel pump started right up....(after spending all day scratching my head!)

Plug your headlight in and then come back if it still doesn't work.
