Default 2006 won't start

I have a 2006 non turbo street cruiser that had sat for a while, battery was dead so I replaced it. Took it out for a ride and went about 5 miles when it started sputtering, no response to throttle and died. Would crank and fire but not start or run. Had a 1/4 tank of gas but thought it might be empty so I came back the next day and added fresh gas but now won't even fire. Just cranks. I do not hear the fuel pump running at the tank but haven't tested the fuel pressure at the fuel rail. Even after shutting down I didn't get any codes show up on a scanner. Scanner did also show the fuel pump relay coming on. I'm leaning toward the fuel pump but does anyone have any other suggestions?

I'd definitely test for fuel pressure first. Sounds like a filter or pump. You could check the fuse and try swapping relays first.

Spray a little starting fluid in the intake, if it fires you will know its fuel related. If you find the fuel pump is not working, first check the ground at the pump before you replace it.
