Having electrical issues with my 08 DL1000. Riding on Sunday and made 2 stops. Everything going well until trying to leave my 3rd stop of the day. Inserted the key turned the ignition and.... nothing. No gauges, no fuel pump whine etc... Trailored bike home. First thought was battery so tested and charged the battery (was already at about 80% charge). Still nothing. Checked fuses, all are intact. Not sure where to start at this point. Thinking ignition switch maybe?? Would appreciate any suggestions. Working the next few days but want to get on this my next day off. Driving me nuts that the riding weather has been perfect and I'm bikeless at the moment :headbang:

Thanks. Ended up being the 30 amp fuse. It blew a 2nd time and I noticed it only happened when I turned the handlebars all the way right. Finally clicked that since putting on risers the various cables were a little tighter than before when in a full turn and discovered that the tension had created a short in the cable coming off of the ignition. Problem solved.....
