Does the starter run....???Thanks to everyone for their responses. There are definitely some suggestions I will follow up on. I have been checking some things with a test light and now I am more confused than ever. Here is what's been going on the last couple of days. I was beginning to think there was a poor connection somewhere so I started checking all the connectors on the bike. They all seem to be good but somewhere during this fiddling the dash lights came on and amazingly the bike started without hesitation with the starter button. It idled nicely too. I shut it off and was replacing some bulbs in the dash and everything went dead again. Using a test light I seem to have power everywhere. The main fuse, the starter button, the coils, the sockets in the dash. I have continuity in the cable from the battery to the starter but I'm still in a no start no power situation. I still think this may be a connection issue but I'm at a loss on what I should do next. I must admit I'm pretty ignorant about electrical issues so any thoughts would be appreciated.
You need to identify if it is a "Starting" circuit issue OR an Ignition" circuit issue.
This will narrow down the number of locations you need to check for the power loss.
