Default Fuel Pump not getting power

Hi everyone, I have an 05 zx6r and I am having an issue with getting power to the fuel pump.

When I got the bike it had been stunted and a little beat up, but i figured i could fix it up pretty quickly since it still ran.

It sat for a while and the battery died, when I finally had time to mess with it I tried to start it and the fuel pump wouldnt prime. I put power to the pump directly, and it works fine. I checked to see if it was getting power at the first connection off of it, and it wasnt. So I checked all the fuses and I have checked the relay box, and both are fine.

Right now I am down to checking the vehicle down sensor, but I'm not an electrical guy and the manual doesn't make sense to me on how to check it. (as it wants me to leave the sensor connected and put a voltmeter to the sensors "prongs")

Any ideas would be appreciated

Thanks

it breaks it down pretty easily.. def gotta learn how to read a meter and be able to check shit like that if you're gonna fix it yourself. shake the sensor and see if the bike primes. check the killswitch and kickstand switch as well.
check the fuse, check for power in all the right places.. it's probably something insanely simple.

Ha, after all that hassle of tracing down the wires looking for a bad ground or melted wire. It needed a new battery and fired right up. Guess I shouldn't have overlooked something so simple.
