Assuming you got everything wired up and plumbed correctly, there's nothing theoretically stopping you from doing that. The fuel pump should be self-regulating or the regulator is in the stock line (I forget which on this bike) setup though, so if you were to bypass the power, it would just need a straight 12V to the pump, you don't need an external pressure regulator at all. It's not going to be regulated by voltage. The worry I would have is what is causing the fuel to not prime/run could also be preventing the ignition and other things from running in the ECU. For instance, I found my Triumph Daytona (an early 2013 (11-12 type) model) came with a 2008 dash installed as the previous owner tried to get it working with that. Triumph has a communication setup between the ECU and the dash, and if the dash doesn't match the ECU range, it won't turn the pump on, and it wouldn't start anyways, even if the pump were running. Solved that one by finding a 2011 dash on Ebay. Not saying that's your problem, but more to the point is that powering the fuel pump wouldn't have done me any good.
Is it that there is no power going to the pump?
Kickstand switch good?
Tip-over sensor good?
Wrong/Broken dash or not-connected with the K-Line wire? (throws a code if this is occurring)
Non-Immobilizer model (i.e. USA model) - Is the grounding block installed on the wiring harness under the seat
Immobilizer equipped model - Is the key/ignition damaged and the bike not recognizing the key?
First power-on? My bike seems to take some time to "Boot-up" after each time I plug in the battery. Takes a reset or two.
Battery has 12+V?
Is anything getting power? Make sure it has a good regulator/rectifier.
Are there any codes being thrown? Just need a generic ODB2 reader to find out.
