Starting Problem (sometimes)

Ok, here's the deal. I bought an 01 929 last fall. It needed some body work, so I didn't even ride it on the road yet. I fixed it over the winter, pulled it out to take it for a spin today and all seemed well, it started right up and ran fine. I then shut it off, only to try and fire it up again a few hrs later with no results (just turns over).

There's a few things I've notice when I go to start it

1) I don't hear the fuel pump and
2)the turn sigs don't work.

However, a few min later it fired right up. I let it idle for about 8min, then it just died. Temp was 215 (if it matters) and once again it would start and the same thing 1+2.

What the heck is going on with this thing?

I'd really appreciate any help or suggestions. Thanks.

Re: Starting Problem (sometimes)

I'm posting this just incase someone else has the same problem in the future.

I found the problem and it was the ground wire that goes on the bottom of the fuel pump. I haven't figured out where the heck it goes exactly and tracked down the root of the prob., but for now I just ran a different ground and it starts/runs great.
