This deed is done, but before you spend any more money on your bike parts, check for the available alternates to OEM. You'd be surprised how much you can save.

A great source is Beemer Boneyard - not only used parts, but also many new ones. Here is the link. They do carry fuel pumps etc. for most models.
Here is an example: oilhead Valeo starter motor is $200, Hall sensor $230.

Hi all. Wow, it's been a while but the problem has been found. There is a diode related to the Motronic and most of the relays that was failing. My hat is off to Mike at Moto Marin for having the courage to tear apart the fuse box, find the diode, test it and confirm that when warm it was allowing voltage to flow in two directions (not what a diode does). Since this find and repair all is well.
No good deed goes unpunished.
