We aren't experts on your bike, but electrical problems are fairly universal. How old is your battery? A fully charged battery should register at least 13 volts. You can try jumping it from a car battery with the car engine not running. If it cranks, the problem probably lies with your battery.
I recently had a battery go bad and it exhibited the symptoms you describe. It had full voltage but zero amps, so I would suggest you check the amps on the battery. If that doesn't get you in business, check your ground and other electrical connections. Clean them with contact cleaner, apply dielectric grease, reassemble, and make sure the connections are tight. Good luck.
I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!
