86 K-75 Fuel pump Problem
I'm trying to get my K75 running after sitting for 2 yrs. I am starting with the fuel pump. I purchased a new fuel pump, filter, hoses. Cleaning the old tank out and saw that the "relay" with the wires that were powering the fuel pump were connected to, was pretty corroded. I cleaned it pretty good. None of the wires seemed to be frayed or disconnected. I installed the relay and floater back and installed the new pump and filter. Everything looks good, added fuel and tried to start. Nothing, I didn't hear the whirl of the fuel pump. So I'm guessing there is no fuel getting to the engine. So i'm not sure what to do now.
How do I know if its the pump or the wiring? (The pump was bought brand new, so I'm pretty sure its good)
Is there a way to test the pump thats not in the bike? I do not have any electrical testers. (If it needs something like that)
And if its the the relay, do I need to replace the whole thing or can i bypass it some how?
Thank You for any help
