    when you hit the start button, it stops current to the lights tp allow all the power for the starter.
    sometimes those buttons corrode and loose contact. jump the starter with a wire or cables.

Possibly your starter has a short. Try jumping a hot wire to the starter.

You either have a broken/disconnected wire or you have a bad starter button. The starter button is a two position switch. Push it in half way and the headlight turns off. Push it in all the way and the solenoid engages the starter. The button is either dirty or broken.

Take a piece of wire or a screw driver and short the terminals on the solenoid. If the starter works you have a bad solenoid. If you hold the starter button and tap the starter with a plastic hammer and the starter works, you need new starter brush's.If you take the starter apart and do not have continuity between every other armature contact, just buy a new starter and put it in.

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.
