919 ...I have absolutely no power.

I figured out why my speedo hasn't been working. Wires.

In the process I touch some and now I have absolutely no power.

No horn, lights, nothing.
Tested battery.ok
Jumper cables to battery. Still nothing.
All 10 and 20 amp fuses ok.

Help please!

Bet every time from now on, you'll check the main fuse.

I have a friend that used to run a Suzuki dealership and guys would have their bikes brought in on a trailer claiming the bike wouldn't start. He said 9 times out of 10 the red kill-switch was in the 'off' position

Could have been worse, but glad the fix was cheap! lol

I shit you not, I was test-driving my truck today after some maintenance just past sunset and I saw a couple pacing around a harley on the side of the road. I turned around and threw on my flashers, got out and asked if everything was okay. The guy claimed the bike acted like it just ran out of gas. He borrowed a screwdriver from me to pull a gas line and after he pulled it, gas spewed everywhere. He then hung his head in shame and asked "You ride bikes? If you do then I can't tell you what I just done. I'm pretty sure you know what my problem is." He hooked everything back up, got on the bike, flipped the ignition kill-switch, and fired the bike up. Oh that made my day!

Haha..

One of the guys at work has a Honda shadow. I'm at least glad to see he has the right make but he's clueless on his bike.
