This has an electric fuel pump in the tank. You will have to drop the tank to access the fuel pump. I would check it for spark as well. If it has spark or will run for a few seconds off starting fluid, then the fuel pump is the issue. If it doesn't have spark or fuel then the issue could be a problem with the timing belt.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.
