But there is a lesson here pertaining to electrical diagnosis. At the load(in this case your fuel pump), if you have power and ground, the load HAS to work, unless it's defective. Continuity by itself doesnt tell the whole story.
One tool that works in this case is an inexpensive terminal test kit. This set consists of a number of common male and female electrical terminals. These are used to check the tightness of female terminals in connectors. Heat and vibration can open up the female terminals and cause intermittent opens in power and ground circuits, ECU circuits, you name it. These kits are commercially available, I bought 2 from Mazda years ago, but you can easily make your own. Purchase a variety of male terminals such as used on your motorcycle from an auto parts store and crimp or solder them to a piece of a coat hanger. DONE! Now you can use this tool to test the tightness and fit of the female terminal.
