The round fuel tank power connector has given me trouble in the past. I took a pick (something very small but stiff) and used it on the female connections in the plug on the bike harness. VERY carefully try to close the gap in the connector pin, just a little more than it is. What you are trying to do is make a more positive/tighter connection when it is plugged back into the tank. Also check the wiring where it attaches to the back sides on the pins (think they are crimped) for any looseness or fraying. Unless you can verify your fuel pressure, I would replace the fuel filter. There are replacements to be had at auto parts places. 8mm/ 5/16 inlet and outlet and able to withstand higher fuel pressures.
