Soo, it won't start at all, not even a "clicking" sound?

We need more info, it could be anything, even the kickstand indicator.

Are you in neutral when your trying to start it?

You are wasting you time doing other things until your battery is proven good.
New/charged does not always = good.

See post number 10.
