There is a relay i have to unplug because when it is plugged in and i turn the power on it starts smoking. I just got the bike. It is a 1984 goldwing 1200. It is not getting any fuel to the engine. And i bought a new fuel pump but the pump does not turn on and no fuel goes through. Took the peckok off and there was dirt clogging it cleaned it out. Cleaned the filter and now fuel flows good through filter just wont get to engine.

First, welcome to the forum.

That is the fuel pump relay.
See this post for more info on checking it.

Thank you very much. I got it off the bike and looked up the part number and thats what it is. ☺ that would cause the pump not to turn on right?

If that relay is smoking and not working, then yes, your fuel pump will not work either.

Seems like it should have blown a fuse rather than smoke-is it the correct amp fuse?


My exercise bike is a goldwing.
