starting 2004 1200gt?

I bought a 2004 k1200gt with a blown engine so I never tried the starter.
I have replaced everything and was ready to turn over the new engine. All the lights and electrical works as it should the problem is that when pushing the starter button absolutely nothing happens no click no noise. I have tested the starter and it is working. I have a 2000 k1200lt and am going through the same procedure to start the GT as I do when starting the LT. Am I missing something?
I believe I have connected everything but need to know about the battery connections. The 2004 gt seems to have only one positive wire connecting to the battery and two wires to the positive. My k1200lt has two wires to both positive and negative terminals. Can any one tell me how many wires are on the battery terminals or any other suggestions.
thanks carl

Try bypassing the side stand switch. after that, there could be a broken wire in the harness around the headstock or the kill switch may also have a failure in its wiring or contacts. Check any relays and finally check the earths in the system.
