Default fuel pump wires?

I wanted to ask if anyone could tell me what colors the fuel pump negative and positive wires are on an '01 V92C?.....I bought this bike not running after previous owner tried tuning it up to sell....They replaced the battery, fuel filter and I think they said the plugs. They believed it to be a bad fuel pump and I agree. I brought it home and tried to get the pump to come on by directly connecting it to the battery. All I get is a click and nothing else. I ordered a new pump, but since the wires were already off when I got it, I just want to be sure I put it back in correctly. Thanks

I just checked the manual for that bike and it doesn't jump out at me. Is there a connector that you have to re-attach to the fuel pump leads? What color are the wires on the bike harness and what are the colors on the new pump? Maybe someone knows the answer outright but im just trying to understand why there is no connector. Also, the colors may follow a standard color code like red and black..

Default wire colors

There is no single connector. There are two wires with eyes to attach to the pump. The pump itself is marked + and -. The wires are on the bike are black, and the other looks to be a purple color. Common sense tells me that black is ground, but since I am new to this I want to be sure before I hook the new one up in a few days.

Do you have a voltmeter? To be sure you could turn the key on and check the voltage across the two wires. i am not sure but i assume those bikes' pumps prime when you turn the key on? Try first with the black lead on the black wire and the red lead on the purple wire. woltage should be around 12V (battery voltage). If you get a negative voltage you know the black is positive and not the purple.

You could also check the continuity of each wire to the negative terminal on the bike. only the ground (-) should "beep". Although i am not sure if that ECM works by switching the gnd on and off or if it switches the power on and off. The first method should work fine for ya.

am guessing the black is ground. If you turn key on and touch it to the terminal on the pump marked - and nothing happens its the ground. To check look at the fuse to see if its blown. Fuse is good then its ground.
Make sure you have a gallon of gas in the tank when you try it. Turn key on push red kill switch to off then to run. Do this two or three time to fill the pump with gas.
Not trying to be mean but you should never do any electrical with out a meter there cheap and you can get them every wear

I tried continuity check, but it seems to get a response from both wires. I pulled the battery and box to make it easier to get my hands in there so I'll have to try that later. Right now I am waiting on the ordered pump and learning what I can here and elsewhere.

Default got it!

I just wanted to get it on here just in case anyone else runs into this issue. I called Rylan at the Vic shop and the purple wire is positive, black is ground as usual. Thank you Rylan, a very nice guy and I plan to recommend his business to everyone. He was kind enough to answer my question and help me get started on getting this bike up and running.
