Re: honda cbr 400 rr starting problem
I could not find a schematic of a 96 cbr400rr, so guessing this bike is not from the USA. however, there should be a master fuse near the battery on the positive side mounted to the battery box somewhere. i would check this fuse first to see if its burned out.
also, is battery fully charged? might have to top charge the battery to get good juice if its old (>3 years) and been sitting for a bit.

the bike engine has become cold.ask someone to push from behind while you sit and try kick-starting it.do this for several times.if you have failed and want to end up then go to any mechanic.i think this will work.
go to the spark plug wires, test for ohms resistance (your local dealer should have the specification for ohms resistance on spark plug wire). Next: Check coil, again test ohms resistance (dealer has specs).
If you do not own a multi-function meter, you may be able to get one for like $2-5.00 at harbor freight if one is near by. Alternatively Sears or Kmart for $20 bucks.

your battery is dead you can recharge it with a 12 volt battery charger. you could also jump the bike with another bike or a car. if these two solutions aren't possible because you don't have the necessary equipment or whatever you can bump start the bike by pushing it (works best down hill and/or with buddy's help) hoping on with the key in the on position and shifting into 2nd gear and dropping the clutch. be careful and goodluck
Was the bike running fine before you cleaned them? If your bike won't stay running, you might need to adjust your idle. There is a black round dial on the left side next to the stator (big round circular housing) turn it so the fuel is increased.
do u have any spark at the spark plug. When the kill switch is faulty it won't give any spark try disconnecting. sometimes this kill switch grounds itself or the contacts stay closed. For it to have sparks contacts should be opened. This kill switch grounds the coil so the engine stops running
