Get or make a test light and start tracking. This light needs a wire to ground and a probe. Wire in series, through the bulb.

Clamp ground end on the negative battery terminal. touch probe end to positive termimal, and witness light illuminate. (<< Done at the start of each testing evnet, really annoying to be treaking stuff with a dead light..).

So now you move the probe along your wiring, and witness power along the way. Eventually, the light will not light, and that is an area to explore.

Now, the types of areas that need testing are multiplugs, switches, and terminal blocks.. You cannot get to everywhere, but you do need to get at the key switch area....Your bike may have a main fuse. If this has failed, something pretty heavy is wrong, somewhere. you need to handle BOTH things. Not always easy access. Look for places where stuff moves, flexes, or is exposed to water.

Suzuki katana ay50 treg my front and rear light went off put in new bulbs and they blew

Check the battery voltage when the engine is running. It sounds as if the regulator has failed. Also check the earth lines on the bike and make sure they are tight and clean.

So i bought a batt for my 1999 suzuki katana 750 i rode a couple a times let the bike sit for a couple of days now when i tried to start it it sounds like it wants to start but it will not kick over...

Put the battery on charge - while it is charging remove and clean the sparkplugs - once the plugs are clean and refitted also make sure all the HT leads are secure - check the fuses, have a once-over of all the connectors and cabling and make sure everything is dry and secure.
Likely the battery was never fully charged to begin with - but still clean the plugs since they will be fouled from the non-starting.

Problems with battery holding a charge have to charge battery after one day of riding

If you have never changed the battery in this bike, it is time for a new one.

A battery will only last so long before it sulfates and stops holding a charge.
