No battery power anywhere.

I own a 1986 1100 and I don’t have any battery power anywhere. Even turning the key to on, no lights turn on, literally nothing.

I started with with the Starter Relay by jumping the red and black wires, starter turns over. That lead me to the yellow/green wire and the black/white wire I checked the continuity of the ground wire to the battery ground, it was good. I wasn’t getting power to the yellow somehow. Followed the wiring diagram to the engine stop switch, it was good. Continued to the Ignitor, and I’m not sure what is going on. I believe it’s bad, but I can’t confirm at all.

The bike currently has a Dyna 2000 Ignitor.

Any ideas? (Pic for reference).

Check the circuit breaker.
Just checked the circuit breaker, somehow I’m not getting any power to the red wire leading up to it. I’m assuming I have to dig into the main wiring to find out the short?
Ignition switch?
already checked. The connections are good for “on”.
Are you using a multi-meter or a test light?
When you say connections are "good", does that mean you have source(battery) voltage at each point that you test?
I’m using both a multimeter and a test light.
Do you have power on only one side of the circuit breaker, or nothing at all there?
I used a multimeter to measure the voltage going from the positive end of the battery to the circuit relay. No power at all. But when I go from the negative terminal to the circuit, I get a reading.
