Does the starter relay affect the fuel pump as well? I have issues where the fuel pump and starter don't work, but can cycle the kill switch or ignition and the fuel pump comes on and the starter works.

I'm guessing you have a C bike

Did that first. No change! Being intermittent, that's why I thought it might be the starter relay. The relays in the fuse box click when you turn on the ignition but no pump or starter. When it does start, it runs for a few minutes, then dies.

Nothing like a challenge....
When you say runs for a few minutes and then dies. I assume you are talking about the engine. So my next stupid question is. Have you checked the connections at the battery with a wrench and are positive they are clean??

While I'm here. I would recomend checking the crank sensor [left, top, front of case] and make sure it is clipped in tight. Also follow the small red wire from battery + to the circuit breaker, and make sure it maintains power on both sides

New gel battery, all connections clean and tight. Everything else checks out fine. Where I'm losing power is the purple wire on teh other side of the pump relay. Have got to get a wiring diagram.

No, I am going to pull the fuel tank off this afternoon and the seat to start tracing wires. Just ordered a factory service manual cd from ebay for 18.95.
