You've welded your starter relay closed. A normal occurrence when a weak battery is used to try to start a K bike.
One option is to hold the battery cables on, when the engine starts cranking, have someone punch the start button. Sometimes this will free the relay.
Another option is to attach the battery, climb on and jump it off a curb. Again, sometimes this work.
Tearing the bike down and replacing the relay, or cleaning up the contacts is the best. Sometimes you can tap on them and free them up, but since you're that far into the bike, might as well replace it.
What was that middle thang?
