You may have blown a fuse. I seem to recall reading something about a similar incident, but my memory is fuzzy on it so I could be wrong.

However, when you say that you have power, just not to the headlight and that it doesn't even try to turn over, that sounds like the start switch problem. When jumping the bike, you might have burned the start switch contacts. It won't hurt to clean those up and see what happens.
Thank you sir... Problem, I have two young kids at home now. Not sure how feasible it will be to keep driving back to MATC to work on my MC... (time constraints). not even sure where the start switch contacts would be?
