Foreman 400 will not start

1997 Honda Foreman 400, had it since 2003, will not start. Two days ago, it would not start so I jump started it, ran for several minutes, would not start again, cranked it and it started OK. It ran for about 3-4 minutes and just died while driving it. Now, it cannot be crank started nor electrically started. Removed battery and it was dead, charged the battery but nothing. Bypassed selenoid, nothing. Lights on dash do not come on. I am at a loss. Also, I am not a mechanic. Any help would be appreciated.
