98 GSXR 600 Wont Start

Hello All.......HELP!!!!

I recently bought a used 98 GSXR 600...and it is all of a sudden not starting... I had it running ok then it seemed to choke up an stall..now it wont even crank over. Also the fuel pump does not seem to be "priming" ie when i turn key to "run" I cannot hear the pump wind up....I am suspecting posibily a relay or somthing but am really out of my depth and would GREATLY appreciate some advice on the cause or the process of elimination i could take to determine the prob...Thanks in advance

No cranky...no battery juice. Start with battery. Might be a relay, but doubt it. If it won't even crank over, it doesn't have enough juice. When you turn the key, do you get dash lights? If yes,, what happens when you push the starter button?

Like was already stated. Check the battery. The fuel pump only comes on when needed too.
