royal star HELP!

Hello everyone, I just bought my 99 royal star and off the bat the person I bought it from said it was the original battery and had been sitting and needs a new one. It is prime snow season here in new england and after trailing the bike from boston to rhode island I had the privelege of being able to ride the bike the short distance to a garage for storage. Long story short my friend was assisting in giving me a quick jump and accidently crossed the positive and negative on his end and now the bike has zero power. I swapped in a new battery because it was needed but there is no power to the bike at all. Has anyone ever had this happen? Im going to start pulling fuses is that where I should start? Thanks for the help

Glad you found the problem. Jumping a bike can cause some serious problems if its not done right so it's great that it was just a fuse. Welcome to the forum!
