Also all fuses have been changed when battery was changed as I was told those were the easiest things to check first before it just wouldn't crank but when key was turned and kill switch was put to "on" fuel pump would prime but no crank kept trying over and over then the fuel pump stopped priming that's when I put the new battery and fuses I have my bas bypassed so I know its not anything to do with that

Do you have a multimeter? Check the connections (electrical) of the cables to the ignition, make sure you have power. Find a service manual for your bike so you can trace the wireing

just downloaded one few minutes ago and the ignition is brand new also replaced that because I had read about a lot of different occasions were people have had problems with the pink wire in the ignition for this specific model bike/year

Did the problems start after you replaced the ignition? Check all those connections and wires. Have you checked the fuses?

no they started before the ignition I replaced it because I was reading something about a pink wire from the ignition that can cause those problems that are happening to me so ordered new ignition got new battery changed all the fuses and still same problems with the addition of no fuel prime as well now

hypothetically speaking lets say I was to change the starter, stator, rectifier and fuel pump since if I do this all on my own im looking at about 200 in parts and the problem continues to persist what would you think it could be? bad grounds?

Also im going to bypass the kill switch and put a momentary push button since it would be easier then removing the kill switch to clean the connections ect. what could it possibly be...

Also sorry for the double posting if it is against the rules cant find a edit button :(
