I got a 2000 gsxr600 with about 30,000 miles. I just replaced my battery about 20 miles ago and I was riding with no issues and my bike shut off mid riding and now when I turn the key there isn’t no reaction as if I never turned the key no power no nothing. Anyone have any ideas on what it is ?

You should have checked the charging voltage after you put the new battery in.

Might be a loose main battery cable connection too.

NOW......you need to fully charge the new battery and see what happens next.
If that gets it running, the charging voltage needs to be tested.

(And while not too likely, sometimes new batteries fail too.)

Could be a battery connection. When I first got my M50 it would shut down randomly, the whole electrical system just went dead and then it would be OK again. I eventually figured out the nut on one of the battery terminals was cross-threaded. It felt tight but it was not tightly clamped onto the battery lug.
