Hi, I'm new to the site and am looking for help with a new electrical issue my bike developed yesterday. It's a 97 VMax and usually runs like a champ. While going through the start up process yesterday everything was working as it should. Lights on, carbs filling etc... When I touched the start button... everything died! Now zero electrical anywhere. I've checked all the fuses including the main, and they all test good.

Any suggestions would be most appreciated!

Checked the battery and connections. All is good there, fully charged. Should at least run the lights...

Sounds like a non connection, fuse or relay problem. I'd start following the red wire from battery with a test light. Also would try a jumper wire from neg. Post on battery to a clean bolt on frame. That should rule out the neg. side. Any bulging in the rubber of the wires indicate corrosion.

I'm useless, but welcome from Bend, Oregon. Lots of knowledgeable riders on this forum......I got in on a day they weren't checking credentials. Best of luck.
