No fuel pump prime

Sorry for being an idiot, but after storing my bike (1000 R) for along time I just installed a new battery, new gas, and all electrical seems to work but it's not priming the fuel pump (no sound). If a fuse, where is that located, please and thank you. Anything else to try?

I'm in San Antonio so if I have no luck, can anyone recommend a place to take it locally...

Need to get this sorted so I can sell it.

Thanks

2007 F4 1000R 1+1 Red/Silver - RG3, Race ECU, mid pipe, factory impeller, recall cam tensioner, MV alcantara/leather seats. Owned since new in 2007!!

What year is your bike? What is the condition of the inside of your fuel tank?

If you had regular gas in the tank over an extended period it may have gummed up the fuel pump.

The fuel pump is controlled by an ECU signal. If the pump is good, and it is getting power, the pump will start and run regardless of the condition of the fuel hoses.

Please don't simply "throw information out there". @SAROY: Your issue is not related to this issue.

I ended up having the dealer pick it up. Haven't heard the diagnosis yet. I'm sure the tank needs cleaning and probably a new fuel filter at a minimum, aside from getting the pump working. Bike looks brand new though!! 2007 F4R. I've had it since new.
