Bike wont start as is

So I installed a two brothers exhaust today and went to turn the bike on to hear how it sounds, the gauge cluster didn't turn on because I forgot to connect all the plugs back in. After I plugged everything back in it still wouldn't start, the gauge cluster turned on, engine stop is switched to the on position to start bike.

Do I have to put everything back together to be able to turn the bike on? My assumption was that there's some sensor somewhere, but I have no idea. Currently troubleshooting as we speak triple checking all the plugs and wires.

oh and it's an 06, when I try to turn it on the low beams turn off.

Glad it is working. I have made the mistake of forgetting to flip the engine stop switch wondering why my bike wouldn't start -

Now that you've done that, you have one less no0b mistake to make. It's all good!

Ha, nothing to worry about... I think we've all been there. It could've been worse: I sold my first CBR to a good friend. I got a phone call from his roommate (also a good friend of mine) a couple days later. He said the bike wouldn't start. At first I felt terrible but that's all it was. My friend that bought the bike was all geared up on it and ready to go. The part about this story that makes it worse is that the roommate was videoing and posted the "starting fail" on FB.

You'll have a few other noob mistakes. Don't worry about them, it's part of the learning curve. I recently had one this weekend:
I just bought a cruiser style bike. I've never had a carburated bike before or a bike w/o a fuel gauge or at least a low fuel indicator light. I'm on the highway and the bike starts dying. I reach down and finally find the switch for the reserve tank. I switch to the reserves and go to a gas station. After I fill up I thought I switched it back.
A little down the road I start having trouble with the bike dying again. Won't run unless I go to reserve. I keep switching to reserve and then once it gets going switch back - and it invariably dies again. Finally I find a safe spot to pull over an look at it.
Here's the point of the story: I'm an idiot. Straight up is reserve, turned 90 degrees is OFF, and turned 180 is where it should normally run. I kept turning my fuel off and wondering why it was dying.

I'm just glad I figured this out at my house and not while stuck somewhere outside haha. So it turns out that I was really eager to disassemble my bike when putting on the exhaust and didn't really take into consideration where parts go and which bolts go where, for the most part I got them correct, except I'm not 100% sure where exactly the rear reflectors should be. Could anyone post a picture of there bike and the location of where it goes? lol
