I would check if it still has stock jets. you need stage 1 or 2 dyno jet kit. To get best out of that upgrades also look for any vacum leaka

Check your neutral switch wire. and also the kick stand switch.

Have you done all the regular stuff? There are a number of interlock safeties on this bike. To start, key on of course, side stand up or in neutral, if in gear and clutch is engaged, it will not start, if the kill switch is in the off position, it will not start. Said differently, you must have the key in the on position, side stand retracted, transmission in neutral, clutch pulled in, kill switch in run position. Still will not start, check the start solenoid for proper operation. If that works ... suspect the starter motor.

But did you also change the spark plug cap? It unscrews off the end of the wire . It should read 5000 OHMs any reading higher or lower and you replace the cap. NGK caps run about $5 each . I always recommend replacing them as a set.
