I would think you might have toasted the battery. If you charged it with everything off, I would think that part is OK. Did you replace the battery and it's still dead? If you repalaced the battery or still have a good one, pull out your tester and start at the battery and work your way down the system till you find the problem. Check for a burnt wire or fried connector.
Let us know what you find.
Enjoy the ride. They are all good, just some better than others.

When you say you used the wrong voltage, what voltage did you use? If you used 6 volts, you might have killed the battery but won't have damaged anything on the bike, the battery may also recover if you recharge it with a 12 volt charger (Depends how long you left it on the 6 volt charger). If you used something higher than 14 volts then you will have boiled the battery dry (Replacement is the only real cure) but if you turned on the ignition with the higher voltage connected you could have damaged a lot of the electrics. Getting a new battery sounds like a good idea, but if you can tell us what voltage you used, we might be able to suggest what could be damaged and where to look for the damage.
