What could be wrong now?

Ok a couple of weeks ago I laid my bike down damaged the strator cap..I replaced it myself.

The first problem I had was the clutch not engaging like it was originally. Ok after I rode it last I forgot the key in the on position. I went to jump it will jumper cable and it started after about 10 mins sitting...However, when i take it off the jumper cable it does nothing not even coming on...where do i start?? please help

Maybe your battery took a on you from jumping it. Some say jumping it with a vehicle that is on and running is bad idea. Is that what you did?

Have you checked to see if there is any fluid in the battery?
When you dropped it the electrolyte may have leaked out.

if that battery is weak and you left the key on and drained it down.. it probably is no longer any good..

OK I reread the Op and I agree with the others, the battery has likely gone bad.
About the clutch, maybe you could give us more info. Hard to diagnose over the internet anyway and we don't know what it's doing...

The battery will have charging by the stator alone. Put it on a charger. If it doesn't help it's obviously bad.

Maybe you kinked the cable. If the clutch is cable then try shooting some lube down it. They have an adapter to hook to the cable to add lube.

That is probably an adjustment issue. There are other adjustments besides the one on the handlebar.
Look along the cable there will be a long nut looking thing and usually at the lever sticking out of the engine case will be another.
My advice is either let a mechanic look at it or do some research and find articles on how to do it yourself.

Is it a hydraulic clutch? In that case there could be air in the system or an adjustment is incorrect...
When you damaged the stator cap is it likely that some pieces of it wound up inside the engine? Did the rotor inside grind on it when the engine ran?
If so you could have metal contamination in the clutch.

When you start it with the jumper cables and it is running, does it turn off after you take the cables off? Maybe the stator got damaged when the cover broke.
