Get a voltmeter and check for battery voltage at the starter solenoid, if you have battery voltage there then there are fuselinks attached to the same post get a test light and probe through the wire before and after the little tab that shows the gauge of the fuselinks, the ones that don't have power going through are bad, sometimes they are obviously blown as they will have a small split or puffed up insulation at the blown point. Hope this helps.

Also double check battery connections. Make sure they are clean and tight. Also check the negative connections to the frame and motor. These to May have some corrosion issues.
