First make sure that the starter is not loose and that there is nothing blocking the starter drive from enguaging to the flywheel. Also check for 12 volts at the starter when you turn the key. Could also just be a bad starter.

Sounds frustrating!

A couple of things.

white smoke is water vapour
blue smoke is oil
black smoke is rich mixture

The fact you get a shock from the handlebars worries me. The high tension circuit should be a sealed system, coil to plug to earth. Here is a trick. Start the bike in a garage, or somewhere that is pitch black. Look around the coils, plug leads and plug caps for sparks shorting out. I think you have HT power leaking somewhere. Good quality leads and plug caps should fix it if that is the case, but testing in the dark is a good test. Let your eyes get accustomed to the dark before starting the bike up.

All digital displays have a capacitor on the circuit board behind it. See if it is blown at the end or even split.

Hi, Jplane65 for this scenario you will need your service manual that has all fastener torque specs and a wiring diagram on the back pages, parts fiche, and owners manual if you can't find the best tool you ever bought for your Suzuki, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.
