Getting to the spark plugs is a pain. It involves dropping the radiator out of the way at which point you can try to squeeze up under and behind the frame to pop the caps off. Then you'll need a socket with an extension as the plugs are a good 4-6" (if I recall correctly) down into the block.
Try everything else first. Add gas, check battery (try jumping it if you need to), check fuses, etc. Doesn't sound like a kill switch issue if your fuel pump is priming.
What's the mileage on your bike? Coincidentally, both my friend and I had a similar issue at the same time when our 05 and 06 CBRs hit right around 10,000 miles. Ended up being fouled plugs. Cleaned the plugs up, put them back in and it fixed the problem.
Odd since both bikes were babied, well-maintained, and had run high quality pump gas from day one.
