Unhappy Honda CB919 2007

I'm brand new to motorcycle maintenance. I've had my bike about a year.

The battery died. I ordered a new one and tried to replace it myself. I took out the old battery properly based on the instructions in my manual, then I attached the new battery. As I was sliding the battery back into the battery compartment the positive cable came off while the negative was still attached (stripped screw) and the positive cable made contact with the metal frame of my bike.

The battery started putting out very thick, black smoke for about 10 seconds and I heard an electrical zap sound. I knew that the new battery was dead but I wasn't sure of the extent of damage I had done to the motorcycle.

I got a new battery and installed it properly with new, secure screws.

Now when I try to start the bike the lights come on and the ignition button works but the engine won't turnover and start up. Also, there isn't the distinctive high pitch sound of (I believe to be) the fuel pump engaging.

At this point I am trying to figure out what the problem could potentially be and if it is something I can fix without having the bike towed to a repair shop.

Any ideas?

I'd be looking at the fuses, to be found under the seat.
