Haha it’s funny cause I just thought that. The button was switched to the “on” position, so I switched it to the “off” position and now I’m getting power there. Did I wire something backwards?
Really common, switch works 'backwards' for stock 'self generated' CDI ignition. I've mentioned it in several posts over the years that 'OFF' wil be 'ON' and on will be OFF

I guess another question is...... do I tear the top end down to rebuild or just split the crank case like the FSM says I can.

That sucks. Pull the engine and flip it over to split the cases without messing with the entire top end...its not necessary.

It was a heart breaking moment for sure. At least this gives me the opportunity to figure out what is wrong with the electric start and the static timing.
I was trying to use a test light to verify the timing (like cmc video, or it says you can in the FSM as well) but when turning the engine over i was not getting the light to come on but the points are adjusted correctly, at least to my knowledge. Does this method work every single time? I had the key switch in the on position and was getting power to the coils.

When the solenoid is connected and I push the start button, I hear the solenoid actuate but the starter does not turn. I tried with a battery charger connected, I also tried bypassing the solenoid. The starter is connected to the solenoid, on the ground side, via large black wire. The solenoid gets power from the battery. Am I missing anything? Does the starter need to be grounded to the frame?

As I only kicked the bike over one time.. yep one time.. when the shaft broke so it may not have had the opportunity to get to that point. But I pulled the plugs to see if I was getting fuel to them and none was visible.

Just found a kickstarter shaft off ebay. A cl360 shaft will work correct?

All the 360's used same shafts. Can't remember about 350's but that doesn't matter when you've got a 360  ;D

Hey Pj, are there any other cables to be connected to the starter other than the big main one? I can't seem to figure out why the starter is not working.

Is the solenoid activating? Do you hear the click when you press the starter button?

Nope,nothing else You do have solenoid fitted? 4 gauge from solenoide to starter. You can use lighter gauge cable, it needs to be capable of carrying around 75amps. Actual starting current is around 40~45 amps but initial surge is higher.
