Fuel pump relay?

PostAuthor: Nero5622 » Wed Jan 09, 2019 5:40 pm

Does anybody know where and what the fuel pump relay for a 1985 X V 1000 is? I've tested the fuel pump and it works fine, when look good in attached to the fuel system it does not prime or fill the fuel filter. Which leads me to believe that a relay or fuse has gone mad and I have no idea where to look because there is a ton of mixed information regarding the subject. Thank you all in advance.

the OEM manual has a troubleshooting schematic from ~ page 6-49 to 6-54.

the fuel controller is a relay looking thing under the seat, little-box has 6 terminals

THANK YOU VERY MUCH MARK! I found it, any idea if I have to use an OEM replacement or if there is an alternative elsewhere?

dunno if OEM still makes that particular one [being a 1000] but a V-Star equivalent might ... ['09 1100 Classic] :con:

one of the 1000 guys may have a more definite answer for you.

OEM fuel pump controller is still available new for around $126. I've got a working used one for $40 if you're interested.
