I have just checked my fuel pump voltage and I have no voltage at the B terminal on the pump.
The pump works with alternate power applied to the B and ground terminal with the harness wires removed.
Is there a pump relay or fuse somewhere?
Where are they located exactly?

All the relays are located on the left side next to the fuse block. They are tucked in just behind the front edge of the saddlebag.

I found the relay board but does any of them have anything to do with the fuel pump?
I dont have a repair manual so this is like a easter egg hunt with out the repair manual.

I had a look at the GL1500 electrical troubleshooting manual, and it looks like there is no fuel pump relay. There is a fuel pump control output that comes directly from the engine control module, and that line feeds the fuel pump when the engine is being cranked, or the engine is running. Look at pin 3 (black/blue wire) on the engine control module, and make sure there is voltage there. If not, you've got an ECM problem. If there is, then there's a problem somewhere between the ECM and the fuel pump.

Also, make sure the engine is running when you check this - according to this diagram, there is only voltage present at the fuel pump when the engine is starting or running.

Thanks for the info to all.
The fuel pump was stuck with gunk I cleaned the tank replaced the filter I am running sea foam in the new gas but I just noticed that the vacuum petcock is pouring out the weep hole.
I bypassed the petcock plugged the vacuum line and the engine runs.
I have to use full choke to keep it running but after a while I can get it to start and run at about half choke but it is a little rough.
Should I keep nursing it this way until it can hold a idle without choke or should I use another type of cleaner in it?
Do you think a can of gunk in the gas might help?
The bike has been sitting in the garage since 2004.
It had a coat of black gunk in the tank and the sea foam would not cut it.
I need something a little more potent that will not melt my hoses and plastic parts.
Any suggestions?

Oh my. You have a carburetor problem that fuel system cleaner is not going to fix. The carb will have to be removed and cleaned. you see, the idle circuits are always covered in fuel no mater how you store your machine UNLESS you drain the carb bowls. That black gunk in the tank is most certainly in the carb and the absolute positive way to get it out is to remove the carbs and have them cleaned.
