If you've got no power to anything, it may be the main dogbone fuse located just beside the battery. Also check that the plug onto the bottom of the ignition switch is firmly pushed on.
'Impossible' is just a level of difficulty! The only stupid question is the one you didn't ask first!

( Seriously, you haven't read all 115 pages of my http://www.wingovations.com website ?? :shock: )

If you have an aftermarket electronic ignition, check where it plugs into your harness, sometimes using a Scotchguard connector into brake light wire. The scotchguard connectors can be a weak link.

Check the little fuse box insid the false tank... then also remove the clutch side false cover and check the wires into those plugs in front.
I had charging problems for a long time until I check the connectors by the battery the Yellow wires coming from the Alt. had burn't one of the connectors.
So check all the connectors..
