xpress starting problems

i had to put a new bendix in my 97 xpress 400 2stroke. i put it in and now it wont hard even try to turn over but would try before i put the new bendix in. ive gotten it 2 start once since i put it in. usually when i push the start button, it wont do anything. the starter is very new and so is the solenoid. ive charged the battery, checked the connections and they were tight. ive done everything. anybody got any ideas?

Put a test light to the frame and the other end to the hot post on starter push starter button and see if it lights up. Also there should be a clear bag looking fuse holder near the battery. If a wire has shorted out it may be blown. If its good check the ignition switch. Also check the solenoid where you bolt it to battery box. Make sure it is clean of rust. This is how the soleinoid gets a ground connection. Hope this helps you. Thanks
