Bypassing the fuel pump controller (FPC) is extremely easy to do. Unless you are color blind, keep that in mind.
The symptom of the bad FPC is that the bike simply wont start, and no whine from the fuel pump. The bypass requires only a multitool, you use the mole ends (needle nose pliers) to remove the two little T10 screws and pop off the FPC and the knife to bare the wires, and you will need some simple electrical tape or something to isolate the spliced wires.
REMEMBER: If your FPC is grey colored it will likely fail, the new black powdercoated ones supposedly don't.
Once you have removed the T10 screws, they are easy to get with the mole ends of the multi tool if you don't have a torx 10 key.
You will then pop the duff FPC off its base with the useless green gasket which is part of the problem. Look down inside the "well" and you will see a blue connector.
Pinch the the two ears of the blue connector in the "well" together and remove the duff FBC.
You then disconnect it from the black connector at the top.
remove some of the tape shield on the wiring loom to the black connector and you will see 3 wires.
Now is the point of no return.
You then must separate the blue connector from the duff FPC (but keep the duff FPC to make a future short bypass cable and save the money you would spend on the one that is advertised for more than $30, you can easily make one in a few minutes with the old duff FPC).
Ok, now, if you are color blind, you are screwed. You will see the black connector has three wires colored blue/red, brown, and blue/green.
Forget about the blue/red, just leave it alone.
Carefully bare a small loop of the brown wire and a small loop of the blue/green wire to prepare them for the splice.
Next, you will note the blue connector has a blue wire and a yellow wire.
Bare the ends of both.
Next, splice the blue wire into the brown wire and tape it up so now copper wire is exposed.
Then, splice the yellow wire into the blue green wire and tape it up.
Just leave the blue/red wire as is, don't screw around with it.
Start the bike and off you go.
Later, you can gut the duff FPC and connect the female connector to the blue connector you have spliced in place and you have a fuel pump bypass cable which is "plug and play".
Tim Cullis pioneered the splice method when he was stranded in Morocco or some place with a duff FPC. Thanks, Tim!
I copied this to my smartphone and fixed mine when it went tits up/lights out on me 200kms from my home here in Mexico, way back in a mountain town.
It will get you home.
Now, if it is the fuel pump, that is a different story.
