Hi Everyone,
I've done a ton of searching but can't seem to find anything that relates to my particular situation. It's a 2013 ABS model. The bike sat for about a month as I bought another bike. It was running fine before that. When I turn the key, everything lights up and the engine will turn over when I hit the starter, but there is no sound of the fuel pump priming and the bike won't start. (yes, the kill switch is off). When I release the starter, the check engine light flashes but no codes are thrown.
I charged the battery overnight and it does the same thing. We have tried starting with the clutch in/out, kickstand up/down, neutral/in gear, etc. so I don't think the sensors are to blame as I imagine it wouldn't even turn over if they were faulty. We've checked all the fuses and they appear to be good.

Any ideas as to what this could be? I am at a complete loss.

Did you check for gas in the tank? Sitting for a month is no big deal, so it has to be something stupid, if it ran before.

Yes, it has a full tank. We went and tested with a multimeter yesterday. The battery and fuses are fine. The connector to the fuel pump seems to be getting full power so we're thinking it may be a dead fuel pump. Anybody have any other ideas?

Looks like you have done your homework and isolated the problem to the fuel pump.

Not 1 of the fuses in the compartment, but one of the green fuses. its under the ecu
