This is what the fuse will look like.


You can get them at any auto parts store, even Radio Shack depending on where you live.

Do you have a multimeter?

Take the fuse out and read across it. Fuses can "look" good, but still be bad. Had this happen to one of other bikes that had the glass fuses.

Very possible something major happened if the fuse did not pop.

ECU blown, possible, no telling til you get into it and start checking the wiring and all fuses.

I had the same problem. It was down to conector blocks that were all full of blue stuff (corrosion),Id wager thats the problem.

I Got my hands on a Multimeter!
The Battery is a bit low but still charging!
The Fuses are fine!
I've given her a wash to to make her feel better, but she still won't speak to me, I checked the Green Cable under Tank, looked Fine. I tried unplugging my Alarm, checked everything I can think of!

Needing More ideas! You Guys are great Thanks a lot for your Help very much appreciated!
