I have a 2001 V11 Sport that occasionally leaves me stranded. I turn the key and I don't hear the fuel pump noise and when I press the starter button,I get nothing. Sometimes if I wiggle the wires that go under the tank it will work ,but not all the time?

If you wiggle the relays do you hear the pump prime?

Note, no fuel pump either so a bit more complicated...

When I had a problem like this on my sport I ended up with the fuel tank hanging above the bike so I could tug and wiggle all the wiring and relays connectors when bike was running or would not run

Common fault. The injection relay overheats. Try replacing with a bigger amperage micro relay 30 amp. EBay sell them. Not very expensive.
Another possible fault is where the relay doesn't connect with the bayonet within the relay holder/socket. Lift the relay row out. turn it upside down & gently push the bayonet connectors deeper into the housing. Be gentle & make sure you don't damage any wiring.
