Check the fuses first. I can help you if you can post the diagram for the ignition switch you would like to use. Does the bike have spark at this point?
The bike should crank over with the clutch lever pulled in even if the neutral light is not on
If the bike does have spark and it has been sitting for some time, likely it will not start due to dirty carbs
From looking at the diagram, it appears that by turning the ignition switch on all it does is make a connection from the red wire to the other 3. Is that the way you have the switch wired?
Are these the colors of the new switch you are refering to or the bikes wire colors
How long did the bike run for ?
I just recieved a message from one of our other experts regarding your question. He reminded me that it is likely your stock ignition has a resister in it that limits the voltage to the ignitor. It will not run with out the stock ignition. You mentioned you had it running so i assumed that maybe this year did not have one. Now hearing it will not run with the new ignition my thoughts have changed.
Give me a moment and i will get the part # XXXXX the stock ignition
Hopefully you did not damage the ignitor
MAIN SWITCH STEERI 5JJ-82501-11-00
The switch new is right around $130
Good luck. If you would like to work with me in the future put my name in the question and ill will pick it up the next time i am on
