Could be your main power fuse . I'm not that electrically minded. If I'm not mistaking, there's 2 power fuses. On my c50 there's on right by the battery but like a secondary on the left side behind a lower cover at the flasher relay.

Welcome from Kennesaw GA!

There's no need to yell at us, we're happy to help if we can. I've moved your thread over to the Help section so you'll get the appropriate attention.

I'm not positive, but I think the kickstand kill switch might kill that power lead. It's also possible you have a broken, chaffed, or melted wire somewhere.

Is it possible that he has a fried ignition? I was reading about the bikes with spotlights and burning up the ignition if wired the wrong way (I ran a separate harness with a relay). Weren't there ignition recalls for a few years as well?

There have been a number of people who's ignition wiring fried. Yes, that's entirely possible.

Yes, the fried ignition is entirely possible. The "accessory" plug is wired through a keyed circuit which relies on the ignition barrel to complete the connection. When it is used for high draw accessories like spot lights or high output stereo amplifiers, the internal resistance inside the connection is so great that it causes the connection to overheat and eventually melt.

IN ALL BROWSERS, HOLDING DOWN THE CTRL KEY ON THE KEYBOARD AND HITTING THE + KEY WILL INCREASE THE FONT SIZE TO HELP YOU READ THINGS THAT ARE TOO SMALL.

There are other solutions than yelling at everyone. Just saying.

Couldn't read the street signs and should've taken a left turn in Albuquerque.
