2006 CBR1000RR Fuel Pump not priming

Hi guys,
I know there are a hundred posts already with this title but I am struggling with this issue and getting nowhere. I have a 2006 low kms CBR1000 parked up for aprox 6 months. Battery was dead so I replaced for a new one and fully charged. She worked perfectly before having a sleep for the winter. The bike turns over with the ignition, but will not fire up. I then remembered the fuel pump noise and realised its not priming at all. I have seen several posts about fuel pump relays and the fuel pump itself but I cant find any definitive showing where the relay is on the bike (or if it even has one) for the fuel pump, and where the fuel pump actually is. The manuals are nothing much better than a paperweight. Happy to try swapping / bypassing the relay first if I could find it, then go on my way of further checks from there. Any help really appreciated.
Chris

The kill switch is a know issue, and will prevent the fuel pump from priming. I'd try that first.

Check your fuses too. Probably a simple fix.

I had the same problem, and it turned out to be the kill switch. Had it replaced by Honda (not really very expensive either) - problem solved - happy days.

Before I bought my bike it also stood for about 2 years.. So not sure but the standing could possibly contribute to the Kill switch giving up...since yours also did not ride regularly lately.
Any decent workshop could also assist you to check the wires of the kill switch and the switch itself.

Good luck!

This is why I keep my kill switch on the on position and kill the bike with the key. Easy fail safe.
