RC51 won't start

Bike wont start, after I ran out of gas on a brand new fuel pump, unless throttle is wide open then it dies if I let go! it was running good before ran out of gas.

Choke cable operating properly?
Check drain tubes for liquids.
Fuel system filter check and air purge may be needed, running out of fuel will cause "sediment" to enter system and possibly overheat your new fuel pump, since it had no cooling fluid.

Since you mentioned "brand new fuel pump:"

Did you do the installation or did a shop perform the work? I would prop the fuel tank up and re-trace the wiring and hoses to doublecheck. Was the harness for the fuel pump plugged back in?

Chances are it's something simple; g'luck troubleshooting!
