96 cbr f3 starts but wont run

I have 96 honda cbr600 f3 that has been running fine up until now. i was riding and it suddenly stopped as if it had run out of gas. i can get the bike to start for a moment but as soon as i twist the throttle it shuts off instantly. i was told it might be the fuel pump. any suggestions?

Check the fuel pump contacts.
The pump is easily accessible on the left side of the frame.
It'll probably be a Mitsubishi electro-mechanical unit (3 diamond symbol on the black cover).
undo the black screw that holds the black plastic cover, allow the wires to move in whilst gently pulling partially off - do not pull hard or you may damage the wire connections.
At the back end you will see a pair of contacts; check the condition of these they may be pitted or partially burnt away. If there is still a decent amount of metal pad on each side it is possible to dress up and square up the faces to each other using a flat nail file.
If the contacts are shot like the ones in the picture then a new pump is needed or pick one up at a breakers but check the contacts before you buy.
