No ignition, no power.

The ignition fuse (10amp) seems fine. With a tester there is no power to the fuse that I can see. Of course, at the same time, the battery on my multi meter died so I was only using a test lamp.

Either way, the manual has the power from the battery going to the 10amp fuse, then to the ignition.

Any suggestions on what I should test for next?

Thank you in advance. Hoping to get this going by Saturday so I can ride!

Is the battery still good according to your test light? If so, I would suspect a terminal or a cable immediately around the battery, current shouldn't have traveled through many other places if the key was off at the time.
