Check if the green wire to the starter solenoid has battery voltage when you push your starter button. If not, then the starter relay is not sending any juice for some reason. Might be faulty relay or maybe blown ignition fuse or bad starter button. Could even be the grounds to the starter relay. Let me know what you find.

Sorry, I thought this was a starter problem. Check if you have spark
to the spark plugs, if not then check all fuses. If there is spark
then try a shot of carb cleaner or starting fluid to see if it will fire
on that. I will look for some diagrams depending on whether you have
spark or not. See that wiring is okay to ignition switch and also
check the wires you were working on or replaced for problems.
Hopefully it is just a loose wire somewhere.
Is the engine kill switch okay?

Fuses are under the triangular cover on the left side.
Should be in a black box there.
