Question about 1988 BMW K 100
Removing all the old fuel is a good start, the tank is only one point, you also need to flush the old fuel out of the total system including the fuel rail and pipes, to ensure fresh fuel is first into the engine.

SOURCE: fuel pump
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.

The switch may just need cleaning. Remove the switch unit from the handlebar and spray a good quality switch and contact cleaner into it. I had a similar problem with the indicator cancel switch. Do not use WD40. Get the switch cleaner from an electronics shop.
