    Check if you have power to the pick up in the nose cone, some times these wires break

    Right side of motor at the bottom below the push rod tubes, there should be a wire loom running in at an angle, that would be the nose cone and behind that cover is the trigger mechanisim for your ignition Google here is a picture or two

    You can probe the wire coming out of the cone with a test light while cranking there should be power there and follow it up to the coil there should be power there too. Is this stock ignition?

    No that would be your charging system, that is the alternator inside the primary cover on the left side of motor and the battery and voltage regulator, the bike does not run now correct? You may also check the ignition switch for power and the kill switch on the handle bars if you have no power there it aint going to start
