Bike has absolutely no power

No power at all no dash, no horn, nothing. You cant even hear the usual whirring when you turn it on. I've checked the fuses, the main fuse relay, and changed the battery. Cant figure this one out. Help?

I guess start at the beginning. Does the battery have voltage and how much? Oh yeah, and did you check the kill switch?

Check all the grounds. Startor ground is a good place to start.

Maine Fuse?

Check the left side near the battery. There is a little plastic looking cover box that has a 30 AMP main in it.

Cheers!

This happened to me when I short out the circuit trying to install a spot light. There is a spare 30amp fuse next to the one in use.
