Won't start...no fuel pump noise when ign turned on?

I have a 2006 ZX10r and rode to work this morning with no problem. When I went to start it at lunch, it would not turn over. The starter was fine and battery has plenty of juice. When I turn the ignition on, I cannot hear the fuel pumps priming like usual. Any ideas before I trailer it to the dealer and get bent over?

Thanks in advance,
Bryan

Ummm sounds like you pretty much answered your own question. Sounds like the fuel pump is gone bad. See if there is a fuse for it first before going off and buying a new pump. Or you can do the Walbro mod.

May have just come unplugged. Could be your switch on the handlebars to, will the bike even crank? If it will not even crank, if is a switch somewhere, i.e, kickstand, clutch, off/on switch, or maybe tip over sensor.

I believe he did say his crank is fine, so I assume that it can't be the kickstand and the kill switch because it would not try to crank if the switches were bad/off.

IDK< he said it would not turn over, that to me means the engine would not spin, but then he said his starter was OK, so I was

No, you're right. I reread his post and I understand your suggestion. But I think he meant to say it would crank over but just wouldn't catch. Guess we won't know for sure until he comes back and gives better details. My apologies.

that is what i was trying to figure out, if it was turning over just not firing. it sounds kinda fuel related but there is no way to be sure unless i was looking at the bike.

Thanks for all the input guys. I have checked the fuses under the seat, but where exactly is the fuse for the fuel pump? Also, the engine will turn, it just won't fire.

How difficult is it to remove the tank to check the fuel pump connections?

OK now we are talking, you can rule out a faulty kickstand switch, kill switch, clutch switch. Pull your left side fairing right by the seat, the connector for the fuel pump is right behind there on the subframe. You will be able to tell right away if it came loose, if your tank has never been off, and you have never fiddled with this connector, I am betting it is hooked up still.
