05 zx6r not starting

Hi,
I bought an 05 zx6r thats been sitting unstarted for a few years.
Slowly going through the bike. At the moment I'm not getting any spark.
Ive checked and theres continuity from ECU plug to the coils. Coils are in spec as per the manual.
Plugs are new and as per manual.
Im just not sure if theres any more tests I should be doing before I blame the ECU
as being cooked. The bottom set of fuel injectors when theyre plugged in, so I assume thats the job
of the ECU.

Thanks.

clutch safety switch?
sidestand switch?
in gear?
battery fully charged and good?
All the wiring is actually plugged in and in good condition?
kill button functioning and in the run position?

woohoo we are having fun now
Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!

Hi
I shouldnt have posted after watching 5 hours of online lectures...
Thanks for the list. Went through and did some checks
Sidestand switch is in spec as per manual and plugged in
Battery is good.
Kill button functioning and is in run position.
I just found that the neutral sensor has no lead running to it.
Could this be the problem?

It could be. If your green neutral light isnt on, the only way the engine could be started is with the kickstand up and the clutch lever pulled all the way in.

So, unplugged everything and then plugged it all back in. Found that the brake light switch for the front brake wasnt plugged in. Then ground the plugs and tried for spark again. Coil number 1. No spark. Coil number 2. spark.......
Coil number 3. No spark. Coil number 4. No spark.
I tried coil number 2 on all the other coils and got spark. So maybe its been the unplugged brake light switch plus bad coils or maybe its black magic. Either way, Ive got 4 new coils on the way.
