I went out to start my 2001 honda cbr 929re and it wouldnt turn over. I thought it would be the battary, so i took it in and got it tested, it was fine. So talked to a friend and he said it might be the rectefire. We took it a part and the wire plug that conected to the stator was fried. So I bought a new rectefire, stator and cover. I replaced them and it still wont start. I think there might be a short somewhere because all the lights are after marke and the wiring doesnt look to good. If anyone can think of something else that could be wrong with it please let me know. Your addvise would be appriated. Thank you

Sounds like you have 2 problems. Your stator/rectifier issue would only result in a dead battery/stalling. If the battery is fully charged and it won't turn over then it could be battery connection, relay, starter button or other electrical like neutral switch, stop switch, etc. I'm sure someone with more knowledge will come along. You might try 12v to the starter to be sure it is working.
Next to your fuzes there is a relay for the starter with it's own fuze. Check the fuze, if it's good then you'll also see 2 allen screws on the relay with larger wire. Take some spare wire and carefully touch the two screws together. This will bypass the relay entirely and connect the starter directly to the battery. If the starter turns over you know to next check the relay by forcing the trigger via the battery, again if it turns move on to the starter switch, neural switch, and bank angle sensor. Or it might just be a bad ground...
I went to a local bike mech and he said to do the same thing to the 2 screws. He said to turn the key and the switch and it should turn over. It didn’t turn over it just sparked and the lights turned off. I didn’t, however pull the trigger though. I tested the battery and there was only 10 volts? Would that be a problem in the connection and cause it to not start? Should I have pulled the trigger? So does that mean I just need to replace the starter relay and battery or is there something else wrong?
10V is too low for a lot of bikes. They get really picky about voltage levels. Some batteries are bad and show 12V with no load, but can't pass enough current and it will drop to a low voltage as soon as the starter tries to fire up. A lot of people are also against jumping a bike with a car, but I've never had an issue. Try hooking to any larger 12V battery you know is good, or take yours into a battery shop and have them test it.
Your regulator/rectifier is responsible for turning ac to dc and monitoring your battery charging. When that melted down your battery was either hit with too much or too little current. I bet the "test" at the shop was the guy putting a volt meter on it and not properly load testing the battery. Toss it and put in a new battery.
