glad you found the problem!  the way it's wired with wrong relay, the only time fuel pump would get power is when starter button is engaged.  I bet Yami price will scare ya, I just bought a cheap relay myself thinking 7 bucks was too cheap but Yamaha was too much.  Too bad you can't stretch the battery lead but how about removing the the top part of relay surrounding the 4 pin plug and fuses?  I believe it is a combination of snap to fit and glue, once rrmoved transfer that old copper jumper to new relay and snap back in place.

    I considered that, but since I am not familiar with the internals of the relay wondered if switching where the leads connected would make a difference or not.  So I just ordered the correct one on Amazon for like 8 bucks, should be here Wednesday.

    UPDATE

    Replacing the starter relay did the trick, bike starts right up and runs great now.  Took it out for a couple of hours today with 3-4 stops, restarted each time with no problems.

      Nice!  Glad it was something relatively easy and cheap. Just sorry you couldn't ride for a few days.

      The OEM part number is 5JW-81940-02-00, and it ain't cheap...Yamaha wants 80ish for it, eBay has it for about 60, but I bought a generic one off of amazon for like 8 bucks.  First one I bought had the wrong side connected to a fuse, so pay attention to the pics when you're shopping online.

      Thanks so much, I will pay attention to get the correct side connected to the fuse. I pulled the old one, I will hold it in my hand when I order the new one. Man you gotta love this site............

      I got the new starter relay last night, $11 off Amazon, mounted it and as I was hooking up the red cable got a spark..........man I thought this is not good, went ahead and hooked up the black cable, buttoned everything up and tried to start the bike............it started so quick it startled me..........I have had 2 Raiders, 08 and 11 and neither one ever fired up as soon as I hit the switch........ maybe because new battery has 240cca instead of OEM having 190cca don't know but I am one happy rider. Just wanted to say thanks again, you never know how much your story will help out someone else.

      The bike was probably getting tired of just sitting there and was ready to go  :thumbs: it's always cool to work on something and it still works after you work on it  ;)
