I highly doubt you need a new fuel pump. There is a way to check whether a signal is being sent to your fuel pump to prime but you need to take off the fairings. I am not sure how big of an issue that is for you but if it is hopefully someone can give you quicker and simpler suggestions but you perform mine.
The procedure is outlined in the manual but if I recall correctly, you check whether voltage is being sent through the two wires that connect to the bottom of the fuel pump. You flip the starting switch on and for 2-3seconds you should be reading a certain voltage on your voltmeter. If there is no reading than the problem is occurring before the fuel pump. If the voltage is consistent and present than the problem is occurring after the wires. If so, then you can check whether the fuel pump wires within the gas tank are not letting current through. If they are letting current go through in various positions than you can check the fuel pump by connecting it to a 12v battery for a split second and make sure its in some liquid so you do not damage it.
