Throttle Bodies not working?

So I was putting my bike back together after a valve adjustment and it was going smooth until I tried to start it.... nothing. I double checked all the connections and it's good. I've had my battery on a tender and the throttle Actuator Control Module was making a weird noise and then it went away then after did a high pitch noise kinda like when the fuel tank has a lot of pressure in it. What could it be? I spilled a little gas on it but quickly cleaned it up when taking the tank off that's my only guess. I took off the throttle system to remove the control unit but didn't want to take it all apart.

Here is a video link so you can see what I'm talking about:

If the battery is bad or dead, the battery tender might not actually be able to bring it back to a full charge. Have you tested the battery with a multimeter to see if it is putting out at least 12.5V?

all the above

Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!
