Everywhere that could pinch a wire and short the system to ground. A short indicator tool would help.

I would check and confirm the battery is fully charged. If its more than 2 years old, the battery is probably dead. It may appear to hold a charge but does not give any power. With the headlights on, try to start the bike, if the lights go out or very dim, I would say your battery is shot. Its possible the starter has failed but try the easiest first. If you have a volt meter, you can test the battery. It should be 12 volts DC

JIMMY -- DO NOT TURN THIS MOTOR OVER PERIOD!!! If you do not know how to do this PLEASE take it to a Professional!!

You need to disassemble (remove head) and see what damage has been done... check to make sure the head isn't damaged around the spark plug hole.., Make sure the valves are still seated COMPLETELY... stand the head intake port up on a clean rag and carefully pour/spray a THIN VISCOSITY (I spray brake cleaner..careful its flammable!) fluid into the intake tract,, check to make sure there is NO leakage around the valve face into the combustion chamber... clean and dry after checking..THEN do the same with the exhaust tract. If ANY leaks are found have it fixed... if not.. reassemble..Make sure you know how to set the piston at TDC on the compression stroke..and make sure the cam timing marks align..
