If the bike is running crap or not at all, bypass the fuel pump by connecting the fuel tank direct to the carb and see if the problem goes away. This only works with a relatively full fuel tank.

I have done this at the side of the road with nothing other than my bare hands (petrol shot up the sleeve of my new bike jacket I seem to remember) so it's not that difficult. Got me home without calling the breakdown once and 45 miles to work the other time. Bloody Honda pumps.
