Check the battery connections. Remove, clean and reinstall them. You probably had them off doing the wiring and they aren't making a good connection now. Always remove the negative first and install it last.

Obviously the CDI is picking up power from the starter button. Check the ignition key switch for proper operation. Chances are that whatever fried the loom also fried part of the switch. Alternate to that, trace the wire powering the CDI system, disconnect it at the source (starter button connection), then find a power source that is live only when the key is turned on and then hook the CDI wire up there.
an I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer?

I am having the exact same problem (1978 Honda CB750 Four).... while starting with the electric starter, everything electric on the bike just died instantly, even the neutral light. Fuses are ok. I have no idea what to do, and I am sure it is not the battery's fault, because even if there were not enough amps to start the engine, there would still be enough for the neutral light. Something switched off instantly rather than faded out gradually. If you find an answer please let me know. I suspect the ignition coils but I'm not sure. Jeff

SOURCE: Starter fuse. where is it? on
There isn't a fuse for the starter. The trouble you're having is most likely because of:
1) The main 30A fuse is blown. You found the spare, now all you've got to do is find where it goes. It should be in the vicinity of the starter relay (aka starter solenoid). Follow the positive battery cable, it will take you to the right spot.
2) Lose or corroded battery cable connections. Clean any corrosion from them and make sure they are securly connected to the battery.
3) The battery crapped out. These things have a tendency to suddenly give up and quit working without warning. Usually this occurs when the weather turns cold for the first time each season. Check the voltage. Normal voltage for a fully charged 12 volt battery is 12.7 ~ 13.5 volts. Less than 12.5 is suspicious.
4) Bad ignition switch or a bad electrical connection where the harness connects to the switch. There's a rectangular shaped, white plastic connector on the switch. Make sure it is connected securily to the switch and look for any signs of melting. If it looks deformed, disconnect it and scrape the corrosion from each electrical connection inside the plug with an Exacto knife or similar tool. While you've got it unplugged, check for battery voltage at the red wire inside the plug. If you've got voltage there, yet nothing works, the ignition switch is defective and must be replaced.
