Electrical problems are hard to diagnose, especially over the internet.
My guess is, you have a blown fuse, somewhere.
Beyond that you may need a schematic and a volt/ohm meter to dtermine where you have power and where you dont.
BTW for the sake of clarity, when you say it will or won't turn over, that means it will or will not crank. Starting is starting.

Jimrad your is crazy. Actually the repair shop has it. I told them they should keep it as a keepsake. I told them how it happened they really thought I was riding around town like that.

You sure that's the right ignition switch for your bike? Like bumblebee said it sounds like a fuse. Time to get the test light out!!
