That wyre next to the rear brake hydraulic bits, could be the brake light switch.
I recall they are yellow. The starter relay can quit. Turn key, lights action, press button nothing, as in no crank.
If you have crank but not fire, which is usually no power to the coils, it can be dirty connections. Which includes the kill switch, ignition switch, the multi wyre plug to the ignition module, a connection just behind the steering head, the stupid magic box that controls the headlight turning on. Ignition is often red. Start at the battery and follow that wyre.

When I fire Dark Vader my 81 Midnight special, I will eliminate all the silly connections. Just the key for ignition on off.
They seem to run better the more useless stuff you cut out.
