Greetings from Vermont!

I've been riding BMW's now since my 30th birthday when I got a 1990 K75RT that I rode for eight years before it had an untimely demise on route 100. My brother was an R bike guy (R75/5) so I went the K bike route!

Currently hoping to ride my 93 K1100RS, which has been a hanger queen for a coupe of years. Looking forward to getting out soon!

Welcome! Sorry to hear of your incident on rte 100. I rode that a couple years ago in late October snow flurries. A very nice road.

Yes the accident was unfortunate-- bounced off his hood, dislocated my right middle finger and totaled my K75RT. All is good though-- ended up getting the K1100 RS out of it from Franks.

Now it's time to get that on the road. Replaced the fuel pump last night but like an getting old fart, didn't remember which wire went to which terminal-- have a black and a yellow. I'm assuming black is negative while the yellow is positive.

I used to teach at the Gow School and bought my first BMW from the local shop whose name I of course don't remember.

Unless someone has been in before you, the ring terminals should only go on one way as one is smaller than the other.

Positive fuel pump terminal is the smaller one.

The terminals are labeled-- that's not the problem-- it's my connector wires. I'm hoping that black stayed negative and yellow is my positive.

Yes, black is ground. If the wires still have the factory ring terminals on them then they only fit one way since the positive lead has a smaller ring terminal.
