Question about 1998 Suzuki TL 1000 R
The CHEC and lack of fuel pump ('wiring') noise is indicative of a safety device disabling the bike.
The most common causes of this are an inoperative gear position switch and an inoperative engine kill switch.
First off, make sure you go into neutral fine (green N illuminates)
Check your kill switch, make sure it is in the run position.
If you use your kill switch to shut the bike off regularly, try rocking it back and forth a few times. They are not meant for regular use and often wear out.
If N illuminates fine and rocking the kill switch does not help, even momentarily, your next step would be to open the RH control and bypass the kill switch and verify operation. If it still does not power up, last likely item is the tip over sensor, but as you drove the bike before you parked it, it is highly unlikely.
