All I can say is just Double Check all your connections. Also be more spacific. Does anything happen? Turn over? Totally Dead?

if it will crank over and not start and run, check your plugs for gas, wet, dry, condition, if they are completely dry you may not be getting fuel into cyl., if they are wet you may not have spark.. that would be a good place to start. with air , spark and fuel, it should, start and run.

yes, there is a switch on the kckstand that prevents the motor from running when the kickstand is down....can you bypass it just to see if that is the problem??

The switch on the kickstand prevents you from starting the bike in gear without the clutch lever pulled in. It will also shut off the bike if you put it in gear and try to ride off with the kickstand down. It should have no effect if the bike is in neutral.
And what you did is what he meant by by-passing.
