Start by dowloading the workshop manual from the Download section at the top. It not only shows every not and bolt and wire it also contain some trouble shooting guide.

Do you still have the old kill switch?

Start with the simple things like battery, although it may should 12v static it may be bad, might try jumping it. Then I would check the fuses off the positive lead from the battery. Then I would check for good grounds, if all that is ok then move to test at the switch. Starters are pretty hearty and dont usually go bad. However if you need one or a wire harness I can help.

Your last decription of the problem seems to describe a locked up condition with the motor itself, with the starter not being able to turn it over. Could you have a hydrolock condition (fuel or coolant leaking into the cylinder and filling it up) with one of the cylinders? Sounds unlikely, but might be worth checking out. Remove the plugs from the cylinders and try to turn it over again.

ok i got the bike to turn it even fires up but I have to hold the start button. I can even rev the throtle but as soon as I let go of the start button the bike dies.
could it be an electrical issue?

I'd now be looking at the carbs - they could probably use a clean.
