I was reading from a shop manual about testing the pump, BAS, etc. and got out my multimeter to test the connection from the brown and green wires of the harness side of the connector. When I disconnected the wire to run the test water dumped out of the pump side rubber insulation around the wire. I hauled the bike in a downpour on the way back home and it must have collected water in the line. Well I let it hang down and dry out and plugged it back in and sure enough it's working again. So far my only guess is that the water was fouling up the connection then it would dry then work until I rode again and it would happen. My other guess for the time just recently was that I have a steep driveway and when I pull up the water dumped from the front of the bike to the back where the connection is because I surged forward to go up into the garage. When I did test the connection to the pump it read just above 12v for about 3 seconds which should be good. So far this is the only reason I can come up with for the weird off/on behavior of the pump. I'll update this again after I run it a while longer. I moved the connection a little higher up into the rear cowl so hopefully the water won't make it up to it. Thanks for the help everyone.
