How did you check the fuses? And did you check the master fuse? Does anything click when you turn the key?

Put a voltmeter on the battery and measure the voltage with the bike off, then measure it again with the bike turned on.

Also check the battery cables for tightness.

Check you kill switch or reverse lever. Once you figure it out please post the results so it can help others in the future.

I found the positive terminal on the battery was loose.
Thank you for the help
