Looking for help. 04 xstar 350 mcx seems to run fine when cold after a few ski runs engine quits turns over good, but won't start until I unplug connector to the fuel pump then runs for a while kills again unplug power to fuel pump then starts again, wire is hot to the touch. I don't think it's the fuel pump because once I unplug the connection and cycle the key the pump primes.

I would clean those connections good. You got some unwanted resistance somewhere which creates heat which creates more resistance... And so on :)

I would suspect it being the fuel pump. Wire hot at connectors might be contacts. Wire hot between contacts is load. I suspect fuel pump is drawing a heavy load. Anytime I have to unplug something and cycle a switch and replug would cause me to suspect what I am plugging in.
