Replaced Ignition Switch Assembly-Bike WONT start

My 2004 was stolen and they broke the ignition switch. I have sense then recovered the bike, rewired the old ignition switch, the bike started and worked great. Bought a new ignition switch installed it, now the bike will turn over but not start. Cannot hear the fuel pump priming. Have checked all the connections on the ignition switch they are all correctly connected and getting current when they are supposed to. Checked all the fuses and they are good. Dash all comes on, the BAS was never removed from the nose so I don't think that is the issue. No error code blinking on the dash. My plan at this point is to check the spark plugs to see if they are firing, if not then my assumption is I fried the ECM. Any thoughts ideas as to what else would cause this? Or how to go about diagnosing it?

you either have the wrong year ignition switch, or the diode is broken inside the switch

Even if the starter is working and it just won't ignite?

If the wires are hot and the starter is working why would that be the ignition switch?

the diode tells the ecm to turn the fuel pump on ONLY when it see's 9vdc not 12...it's to keep people from hot wiring your bike.....but it's only on the 03-04 ign switch - not the 05/06 which is what you probably bought

Hmmm that sounds like my issue. I bought an after market one from China... which is probably my downfall.

To be honest with you for the life of me i cant figure out how they stole it. They broke the ignition switch and took the locking pin out so they could move the handle bars. They also cut the ignition wires coming off of the ignition switch, so I'm not sure they were even able to start it. I soldered all the connections back together to get it to run again. I replaced the ignition switch because i wanted to be able to lock the bike. I just run to the store and got a 9.1V, 5W diode about to go try it. I would take the old diode out but I tossed the whole old assembly like and idiot!

Put the diode in pink line post the ignition switch pre the ECM and no change. Might not be the right diode.
