The first thing to check are the sparkplugs (are they wet with fuel or dry).
If they are dry - make sure that there is enough fuel in the tank to a point that you can easily see the top of the fuel.
Next with the fuel cap open - turn on the ignition switch and look carefully at the fuel in the tank ( are there any waves or bubbles in the fuel while the pump is priming ??).
To do this make sure that the bike is not disturbed and steady - you should not be able to see any waves or bubbles at all during the three second priming period of the pump.
If you do see this then the fuel lines have come off the pump or have a split in the line.

so i just checked and the sparkplugs seem to be dry and i do see waves but it is after the priming is over, i'll check the fuel lines right now. Thanks

now the bike started... it is weird i just slightly moved the fuel lines. and now i find a small leak from the oil filter, service was done only 400 miles ago, should i do a full oil change or just try to tighten the filter?

There should be no waves at all if the bike has not been moved or bumped while the pump is priming.
Since you see waves then as i mentioned earlier - the fuel lines have come off the pump fitting or are split. Due to this there is no fuel pressure.
You must remove the fuel tank from the bike to do the job. (Be careful and you must siphon most of the fuel from the tank before removing the fuel pump flange quick connectors.)
This is because the fuel that is in the tank will come gushing out of the quick release connections due to the fact that the internal fuel lines are disconnected at the pump !!!.
