Hi and welcome to FixYa,
With the indulgence of DickCanFixIt...
Almost always, in instances such as you have described, the main 30Amps fuse of the 93 CB750 (F2P Retro) would have blown. The main fuse is located along with the starter relay. To locate the starter relay, follow the + cable from the battery terminal.
Additionally, once power has been restored, you may want to check the regulator and CDI as they are electronic and therefore prone to damage on reverse polarity.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

• The first thing to do with ANY engine that has sat for any longer
than a couple of months is to dump ALL the fuel in the tank and
carb(s). ALL OF IT !! You'll want to refill with some high priced fuel
that has fuel system cleaners (Like Chevron with Techron) not becasue
you need high-test fuel, but because you need the cleaners. It's ether
that or disassemble the carbs and clean out jets you can't find much
less see. Your choice. The carb kits alone will cost you about $50 so a
tank of high-test is looking pretty good, huh?
• Now the fact that you tried to crank the engine with old fuel has fouled the sparkplugs. All of them. Go buy all new sparkplugs.

Check wires on starter for looseness and also hook up charger to battery..Sometimes when you buy these batteries they might say they are fully charged but usually need to be charged for 6 hours before use...If battery is fully charged either bad connection at the battery(maybe broken terminal or missing wire that didnt get put back on) or theres a bad ground from battery to body or the hot wire from battery to starter is loose or corroded..Hope this helps you and have a great day!!

You need new regulator and new battery.The battery works as a filter as well.If it is in bad condition it does not filter anything and in high rpm the current is very high.

I think the starter works off of a one-way clutch.
Go over your wiring once again. Make sure all the switches are in their correct positions.
Be sure the battery was properly charged before installation.
