Question about 2004 BMW K 1200 RS
Can you hear the pump when you turn the key on normally? When the pump on my old FJ starts up with the key, it makes enough racket to let you know. Your bike is alot smarter than mine, it might be able to tell that the lines are unhooked and preventing the pump from working as a safety thing. Is the fuel line made of or contain any metal? It may need to see continuity in the fuel system to allow the pump to operate. Or some other parameter is not being met with the lines disconnected. Have you tried thumbing the starter with the lines off? The bike might only pressurize the system when the engine is starting or running.... actually, this is my best guess now that I think of it.
