if it has been sitting it might be worth check the clutch switch and kickstand switch too. They may be stuck in the closed/open position even with the clutch/kickstand in the right position and are in need of a little WD-40 to loosen them up.

I'm guessing you have checked all the fuses?

Also wondering if the new battery has a charge? Some batteries need an initial charge (sorry if this sounds obvious, but it's easier to rule out the simple stuff before REALLY getting into it).

how about the main power relay? Can you test it somehow to make sure it is getting power through to the right parts? I am looking at my manual right now and trying to see what else might be causing it.

I see fuse 11 which is going from the plus side of the battery to the main power relay and to the alternator. It also goes to the main relay. This could be your problem.

My scanner is out of commision otherwise I would scan those pages of the manual for ya.
