'Pin #85 of FI relay should see -12v: It reads nothing. However when red lead is on battery positive and black to pin #85 it reads 12v when the start button is depressed.'

'correct ground test' is verified- you have established ICU Pin7 is providing ground for Pin85 when starter button is depressed

Pin #30 of FI relay should see +12v at any time even with ignition off: It reads nothing.

you need to check wire to FI relay Pin30 as you said should see +12V  -maybe sparky sparky no likey

you can jumper Starter relay Pin30  to FI relay Pin30 for +12V for test starting

Ok- I checked the connections in the fuel injection relay socket and all seems well, no issues. The replacement relay arrived and I installed it but I still have no fuel pump. Itís also fantastic weather outside :(

Have you removed the fuel pump and checked it for operation on the bench. The battery problem and the fuel pump problem could be coincidental.

Is there continuity at your recently cleaned four-pin plug and at the connection between the fuel gauge and the pump?

There is continuity at the four pin. Are you suggesting testing for continuity inside the tank from the 4 pin to the pump? I hadn't done that.
I remember back at Post #239 on page 10 then RBMs reply at #242 he suggests dodgy internals of the old type senders but he may be referring to the thermistors to the fuel level gauge.

Iíve still not got the K started, neither have I got the garage built. To satisfy my throttle therapy in the meantime, I picked up a used 2018 R NineT Pure Sport with 1300miles on the clock. Itís an effortless machine to ride.

No Laitch it translates to I wish I had a padded seat or a more ample bum. One of the OZ Kluster Krew has one.

Luckily, it has the upgraded seat, and twin gauges from the racer so I have GPI, rev counter fuel gauge :D

It's an attractive design. I found a tutor if you want to test its limits. I'd give it a try if one came my way.  112350
