Welded on bike, may have fried electrics. What to do?

Another day, another ****up.

Replacing the steering head bearings, lower race needed some persuasion to come out. Had to weld on a washer to be able to hammer it out, but didn't disconnect the bike's battery or anything else. It was grounded on the frame about 3 inches away. When I went to go plug everything back in, I turned the key and nothing happened. No lights, no relays clicking, nothing. Fuses look good too. I'm not sure where to go from here

Problem solved. Bridged white to brown on harness side ignition switch connector, everything came on. Key side connector white wire is heavily corroded and snapped when I unplugged it. Will be soldering it back together and eventually replacing the switch, probably.

On a completely separate note: Does anyone have a complete list of torque values for gen 1 KLRs? I'm looking for the spanner nut and top nut on the steering head, as well as pinch bolts for the forks

edit again: found list of torque values. Attached below.
