Default Bike won't start?

Hi all, my 01 F4i was running great, I had it on the battery charger and hadn't started it for a bit but now it just turns over but doesn't fire. Like no fuel... Also there is a red light on to the left of the green nuetral light, what is this?

Thats the oil light and it will stay on untill the bike starts and oil pressure is built up. Does the pump prime? If not it could be any of the safety switches (BAS, kick stand, kill switch) How long has it sat, the FPR coulda seized up.

Like Scooby said, does the pump prime? If not then yes check all the safety switches, but it could also be more complex. My pump wasn't priming because the ground wire on the headlight sub harness had a bad connection. Check the pump itself buy connecting it straight to the battery. If it primps then its good if not then its bad. Also make sure you have a good battery and that it is fully charged or the bike will not start.
