95 Suzuki gsx600 katana won't start??

I bought this bike yesterday for my brother cuz he wanted a bike it ran fun everything was ok then parked it and the next day went out and it wouldn't start? We turn the key on its in neutral fully charged battery kill switch is disengaged but you click the starter and nothing happens the lights don't even flicker no clicks nothing. Any help?? Please thanks

kickstand switch.

or someone pulled your coil wires for copper trade in (joke...maybe?)

I may not have a lot to say but it doesn't mean I don't listen.

I put a ton of miles on a 600 Bandit which is very similar. The kickstand wore and became so loose it would sag and kill the engine. There is also a switch on the clutch lever that can go bad. But if memory serves the clutch had to be in for the engine to start, even in neutral. You could also try spraying WD-40 behind the starter button.

Turned out to be the clutch wire. It was frayed and not fully engaging. Waiting on new one in mail
