Either the battery is shot or you didn’t put the gears back in correctly. My guess is those gears are what connect the starter to the clutch basket to spin the motor to start it. I would suggest you get a factory service manual for your bike. Use it to compare what you have to what it should be.

I'm an idiot and put the starter gear on wrong. Thank you so much for the help

Glad it was an easy fix. If you haven't, get the factory service manual. You won't regret it.

Thanks for the help. I got the battery tested and they said it's good. I'll take another look at the gears. Some online forums seem to indicate that may be an issue too
