I had a similar problem with my 84 VT700. Mine was the fuel pump relay was going out. When it finally went I just wired my fuel pump directly to the battery using a toggle switch. I turn the switch on to ride and off when I park it. The fuel pump is designed to only run when the carbs need fuel (based on pressure in the fuel line). I have been running like this for about 6 months now with no problems.
Current ride: 1984 VT700c
Previously: 1969 Triumph Bonny, 1972 Norton Commando Chopper, 1981 Yamaha XS 650, 1978 Naked Goldwing
