Operate the ignition switch..Wiggle,jiggle and move around several times...It's not uncommon that the switch may have bad contacts.

I looked at the schematic..the black wire that comes from the ignition switch does feed the start button so it can crank the bike.The black wire also feeds the fuses through a plug.Its possible then to crank the bike but not have power to the lights if power is lost at the plug.
With a test light or meter,turn on the key and probe the fuses.See if there is volts there.If none,suspect the plug where the fuse block is plugged into.
