Got back from the store, turned on & off just fine., 20 minutes later, it wouldn't turn on, no power. Check all fuses and including the mainfuses,2- 30 amps, all good. Please please somebody I missed work today, I cannot keep missing work. This is the first time I've had any issues with this bike, only has eight thousand miles on it.

Check Battery first. If the bike is not turnig then it most likely Battery. If you have cranking (turning) then its weak battery. If you don't have a volt meter try jump start for any 12V DC source.

Never bumped the kill switch? Keying on, does the tail lights come on try the emergency flasher. Post your findings. If nothing comes on, two things, check your positive and negative battery posts, are they tight? Next and this is difficult, the negative battery post goes to the cast aluminum crankcase near the electric starter, basically the other end of the negative battery post heavy wire. Early years suffered corrosion between the aluminum and copper connector / metal bolt, however to get your symptoms, you would need a bad frame ground also. You could also have a bad key switch contact, several tries on and off. So follow the beginning of this post, signal and tail lights proves the key switch.

Because someone who is frantic to solve their problem takes the time to create an avatar with their first post? Say it isn't so. :rolleyes::whistle:
Probably not, you have a unbiased view. Seen too many escort services , online slot , poker login . Just plain spam. Notice I did post some suggestions. And if the OP reports back, my apologies for thinking otherwise .

I am assuming you know how to correctly check fuses. Next check battery connections and ground connection at other end.

Did you try charging the battery or jumping the bike?

Batteries can and do die all of a sudden, especially if they are old.
Thank you for ur response, I did check all the fuses and the battery was good. So I sent it to a shop, was told my rectifier was bad. Bike is running now.
