Wow! Completely lost!

Hey everybody, had my bike out all day today, running fine, stopped at my brothers for a few minutes, went to leave and no power, no lights, no starter, no nothing, changed the main fuse, checked the battery, made sure everything was where it was supposed to be, but still nothing! Any suggestions???

Possibly, the ignition switch is fried.

My bet, kickstand kill switch as was mentioned. It can look fine but be just a little off.


Plan for tomorrow and live for today.

I don't think that affects the lights though.
(I might have to go check)

How old is the battery? Might have a short in the battery. I've seen them go just like that.

You really need a voltmeter to track a problem like this down. Start at the battery, go to the main fuse, then the ignition switch. I recently had the same symptoms, assumed it was the ignition switch, but with my voltmeter traced the problem to a corroded terminal on the main fuse. A voltmeter is an inexpensive but essential tool in my opinion. Without one you're just guessing.

One also has to question, what did "checking the battery" involve?
