definetly dont need more than one gallon of gas for it to run. When you turn the key do you hear the pump prime itself? How do you know its not pumping? Could it possibly be something else such as no spark?

nope it will run if i manually feed gas..tested the pump with eyes and ears and disconected line to see if it will spit gas when i try to start..negative so with one of the three being hot i assumed my pump was no good after all i had to replace gas tank {hit curb and smashed good} went as far as to open tip switch it is definitely not the problem..gravity fixes it..ingeniously simple..im am absolutely lost , replace tank ,main fuse,pump,kickstand, which also has switch but do not beleive it to be the cause..so what controls the fuel pump? a relay..? I am beyond lost now and scared or the shop screwing me. it must be something i can fix, but two months later i cant even diagnose it so.... would a shop charge me just to diagnose problem ? my thanks to anyone that scratchs their head and tries to help.[?]

One wire is hot...yellow/red at main harness end of plug, and black w/ white tracer is the neg/ground. Double check the blk/w wire. Ohm it to ground and make sure you have a good ground still. There is also a fuel pump relay in the mix as well. All in the factory service manual. PM'd you.

Does the pump run(can you hear it)for a second when you turn the key on?Should be a relay of some sort to give it a prime when key turned on. Did you try to run pump with external 12v source to see if it runs?

Your cheapest approach might be to get a service manual. That will give you things to check. I would disect my 03 but I dont know how different it is than your 05. Someone on the site has to have a manual.

the world make a little more sense now my red yellow is dead and the on that is hot must be a sensor for fuel level i would deduce..so what directly powers that white w/ red tracer wire pre connecting to pump[?]

Kawasaki in 04 was the first company to install a theft deterant on the bike STOCK yes i know how it works... The bike has ecu to ignition recognition. So you dammaged the ignition the ecu will come on the hud will light up but it will not trigger the fuel pump untill the ignition is right. yes i know how to bypass NO dont ask... I dont let that out. but didnt want you chasing your tail anymore...

white/red is fed from fuel pump relay....which is fed from the white/yellow comming from the ECU.

If the ignition is turned on...what status is shown from the FI light on the instrument panel. Unlit = is a general fuel system problem. Blinks = is the immobilizer system problem. Lit = requires a self diagnosis to be run from the plug under the seat. This is where the manual is really helpful...sorry.
