Question Broken fuel pump terminal

I broke the fuel pump terminal on my 06 10r. I tried to soder it back on but failed. I was thinking about using JB Weld I know this has to be connected or else the fuel pump will not activate. I think this wire is a ground but I am not sure. Could I use one of the fuel pump's mounting bolts to secure this wire to? I have searched through the tech manual and wasnít able to find out what this wire is.

It does just look like a ground wire so I don't see why you couldn't secure it to that bolt. If not I would drill a small hole in the plate and put a seperate nut and bolt on it. I would try something none permanent and see if it works.

Drilling into the base of the fuel pump is sketchy. I am not going to do anything until I know for sure what this wire is and if it has to be attached to the post I broke off.

I definitely agree with you on that! Maybe get a regular fuel line that is a little longer so you can start the bike with the fuel tank proped up far enough to fiddle and see if it will start with it attached to the bolt.

100% sure that is a ground wire - the connection is not insulated from the base plate. Just connect it to the other bolt as you have planned.


Helibars, MRA screen, Ohlins damper, reversed shift pattern, sorted suspension, braided lines, Michelin Pilot Power, all else stock 'coz it's fast enough!

There is no way that it's anything other than a ground...Power wires don't get connections like that

I bolted the wire down to one of the fuel pumps mounting bolts. I started the bike and everything seems fine

Thatīs the ground both for the pump motor and the fuel level switch.
