Welcome to the forum from North Carolina. If you had power before the battery replacement, then something done during the repair caused the issue. Is the battery connected properly? Check the kill switch. Is the new battery fully charged?

And to elaborate on that a little:
New batteries usually need to be charged before use. It could just be dead........but not likely I think.

You should begin troubleshooting by getting a multi-meter so you can check voltages.
And if you don't have a small tender type battery charger, you probably should get one.

If everything is completely dead, it also could be a loose connection, either at the battery or at the OTHER end of one of the main cables.

And finally.......if you hooked the new battery us BACKWARDS, the main fuse is probably blown and some other stuff might be smoked too.

Note: Having the kill switch OFF will not cause everything to be dead, just the engine and starter.
