Bike turns over, but won't start!

My bike is Kawasaki VN800, 1996.

Bike ran good, until yesterday, when I wanted to take it for a ride, went to garage, fire it up, bike worked for about five minutes, turned it of to do some stuff, and after that, when I tried to start it, simply did not turn over, make a sound, or nothing at all. So, I researched a bit, and saw that solenoid might be a possible problem, so, I used a screw driver to bypass it, and I could hear the engine turning over, but did not start. And after cleaning the solenoid, the starting button worked just fine, but engine did not start, checked the spark plugs, and there is no spark. An interesting thing to point out is that oil light, and temp light do not turn on, when key is turned, like it happen normally in the past, or before this problem appeared.

Thanks in advance.
