I need some help.

2005.5 950A W/24,000. I just ran my bike at idle after leaving it sit for three weeks. She sounded fine for 3 minutes or so and then she died. I've lost all power. I turn the key and get nothing. No head or dash lights. I checked the fuses in the glove box and in the starter soleniod. I also tried a new battery. Is there another fuse I should be looking for?

Thanks for any input.

Possibly an ignition/key switch with worn internal contacts.

I was worried that someone might say that. Are there anything else I should look at before busting the ignition open?

Power loss

Don't know if it helps but on my SE I lost all power in the ignition circuit and it turned out to be a wire which pulled out of a terminal in the multi plug between the ignition switch and harness .

Don't worry about it, you only have to remove the right fairing and the lower side of the ignition switch (you don't have to drill the security bolts). It's a five min job to get it off the bike. You can also try to bypass it at the fuse panel to eliminate it as a source of the problem:

I just tried the fusebox jumper and I'm not getting any power. No head or dash lights. I also tried a jumper on the starter solenoid. I do have power going to the solenoid. Does this mean I need a new solenoid?

Check by the starter solenoid .There is a fuse there.Also check the fuse and multi plug for corrosion.

The obvious fuse on the exposed outside of the solenoid is the spare. The one that actually does the protecting is deviously hidden behind the plastic on the engine side. Just thought i'd mention that. It fooled me once.

Did it run poorly the last time you rode it? I've seen a shorted battery to the same thing. The 950 needs the battery to complete the circuit and a shorted battery will cause things not to work. Its easy and worth a shot...

Its definately not the battery. I put a brand new shorai in and I still don't have any power. If my solenoid was the problem I think that I would still get power to the headlights and dash. The fusebox jumper didnt work so I think I can cross the iginition switch off the list. There must be a broken or loose connection somewhere. I'm not the best at troubleshooting electrical problems.
