complete power loss ?

ok, so i am riding along, been on the bike for about an hour. stopped for gas back on the road for a few minutes and the bike just shuts off. no power anywhere. pulled the left side cowling apart, fuses all good. find the main fuse and a couple more on the right hand side of the cowling. all fuses good. the main is a little different than the others. looked intact. no burned areas. Battery is fully charged. called for a truck and brought her back home. its a 2004 fjr 1300. any ideas?

My first idea is to start at the Key switch.

Google "FJR ground spider"

Basically there's a ground bus that's poorly designed which overheats and fails taking all your grounds with it.

There's an official Yamaha fix as well as what appear to be better designed 3rd party fixes.
