New Battery and still nothing?

I have a 81 gs450, it to has been sitting around since 86. Ran when it was parked, the battery was hooked up the whole time. I got a new battery thinking this would solve everything.

The lights, blinkers, gear indicators and all work fine. But no noise from the starter. I tried pushing the bike down a hill and letting the clutch out and no spark.

I put new NGK plugs.

What could be the problem?

Check the service manual, find out of the starter and ignition system are on the same curcuit. As I said before, try tracing the grounding system from the starter.
