Welcome to the party! Nice bike!

Uh, if it had rusty gas in the tank, changing it out and replacing it won't do anything. The pump is spinning, but unless you've flow-tested the pump output, that doesn't give you any indications.

The pump needs to come out and thoroughly checked. As in, the fuel filter in the pump assembly is likely clogged and will need to be replaced. The filter is integral to the pump, so it's likely a replacement pump is needed. Beyond that, flow testing and cleanign the injectors is necessary. I'm not talking about that pour-in junk you get at the auto parts store, I'm talking about pulling each injector and bench cleaning and flow testing each one in the proper rig.

Once you are sure the fuel is flowing, then you can move on to possible ignition issues. Good luck!
