When I went to start my bike today I have no power at all. My battery has a full chargewith 12 V and I checked all my wiring connections...all look good. My main fuse is new. I am at a loss of what the problem could be.



Any Thoughts......?

Look at the connections above the main fuse, on top of that solenoid. And check the fuse...again.

Why does it have a new dogbone fuse?

You could check to see if you have voltage at the red wire on the 8 pin connector on the right inner side of the fairing.

Voltage NO = main fuse or wiring from solenoid plug

Voltage YES = Ignition switch iffy

You may want to clean all wiring connections at battery and then re-tighten connections. I have had issues like that in the past it doesn't seem to take much to jar something loose.

Check ign.switch. I have to wiggle the key a little in my 84 sometimes.

Frank,
What fuse are you speaking of? The dog-bone one at the starter relay? Did you replace it? Do you mean that you turned the ignition switch on and nothing came on, even the lights?

Took it to the shop today and it was the starter relay.

Robert....The other day when I turn the key I had no power...not even lights. I did replace the dog bone fuse.

Yeah, Frank. I did not replace the relay but did get a new one which you had, I think. Glad you got it fixed.

the relay itself was not bad,but was the added on area where the dogbone attaches,which also creates a problem when the connector gets corrosion or a loose connection

making this upgrade in addition to hardwiring the stator connector and the rectifier will give you alot of trouble give

but its just my opinion on upgrades since alot of people seem to never have had problems,but sooner or later....lol
