electrical/fuel issue

A few days ago my bike would start with the choke on and as soon as the motor reached a certain RPM, the engine would quit.

I narrowed this down to wires which come to, and from, a connector on the left gear selector side of the bike, under the seat.... on the side of the + battery terminal.

Does anyone know what this two wire connector is for? There is intermittent contact with wires or this connector which is kicking off the fuel pump. If I play with the connector the pump will come on and all is well.

Is this connector for the fuel pump itself, or is it for another sensor, perhaps the stand sensor?

Any help is much appreciated!

tks,

ry

5 years later, the connector I was asking about was for the tip over sensor that someone had bypassed prior to me owning the bike.

I had a similar issue with my bike. Fuel pump would cut off at high speeds. On the battery terminal (+) a small wire feeds power to the fuel pump. The wire itself gets all twisted under the black electrical tape. Take it off, remove tape and check to see if the wire is cut off.
