Exclamation Bike doesnt TURN ON! Please Help!!!

Was running fine until last evening... Rode back from Work, Parked in Garage...

Turned the Key on this morning... Nothing comes up...
Not even a light nor a sound.
Thought the battery died... Charged it... No Luck

Looked thru few forums...
It could be Fuse/Rectifier/Stator issue...
Wish its just the fuse....

I'm a NOOOB at this stuff... Never opened anything except the seats
Don't want to tow it to a mechanic shop for every small stuff...

Can someone help me in identifying the issue and fixing it...

ohh!! I missed to mention... Its a L1 GSXR 750

put jumper cables on it from a car with the car OFF. If the bike turns on, then its a defective battery. You can jump it from a car, but make sure the car is OFF.

Bad battery, bad main fuse; it's the green 30 amp fuse on the starter relay, or bad key switch.

Car should be off so voltage is low as possible. Alt makes more juice available than you want to push to bikes electrical system
