    will dash lights come on or no lights at all? if no, is the battery reconnected?

    did you replace spark plugs as part of the tuneup? if so, are all of the plugwires properly seated onto the plugs?

Perhaps you damaged the starter button or pinched a wire somewhere? check all wiring and connections, switches, buttons. if your bike a fuse block, check all appropriate fuses. if all these things are working properly, break out a multi-meter and check for continuity thru all wires associated with the ignition, fuse block, battery, and if all else fails, check out the starter, it may have been damaged somehow(excessive heat, liquids such as oil water brake fluid, or possibly metal shavings?) i dunno. but before you try everything i mentioned, listen to what the man above my post (FTjoe) has said. hope you get it back on the road bud. ride safe!

I want to adjust my vales on my motorcycle

Coming from a previous ninja owner/rider. I know adjusting the valves is a project to get the mixture just right. If you say it is running fine, I would leave it alone. It you are really looking for more power, get a jet kit which comes specific for your bike and includes a bunch of different sized jets. But my honest opinion even after reaching 20,000 miles on this bike, if it isn't broken don't change it. The best way to learn is to meet a bike mechanic and become friends with him to learn more. There are usually 3 valves that control different RPM mixtures, a low mixture knob controls RPMs from idle-6k- mid knob from 6-9 and high knob that controls the fuel-to-air mixture at high RPMs from 9-12k+ rpm's. This is just one example and they are all different. Basically you test your RPM range, adjust the knob, and repeat until you find the right feel. Too much or too little gas it will get boggy in that RPM region. Oh and don't turn the high mixture valve thinking it's the low, get a repair manual online to locate the proper knobs and you could do it yourself.

2008 ninja 250 engine oil looks green color

Just replace the oil, its cheap enough to do and costs less than rebuilding the engine.
the white foam on the oil cap is normal its just fine water particals built up, change the oil and take the bike on a run.
so does the bike run fine with the jet kit and exhaust change ? you dont explain your self well.
