you test the pump for pressure and volume

for pressure you need a tee and a gauge with a piece of hose, you connect the tee between the pump and carb and read the gauge around 5 psi will be ok

now for volume, be careful and don't set your ride in fire, shut off the engine, disconect the line from the carb, attach a piece of hose to it's end and run it to a container of at least one gallon, have someone start the engine and run it at idle, and at the same time start a stopwatch and count one minute, shut off the engine, measure how much fuel was pumped in the container, there should be more than one quart.
