Bike lost power

I recently had my stator replaced and just got the bike back from the shop a couple of days ago. Last night I was riding home and while I was sitting at a red light, I clicked it into first gear and the bike shut off and lost all power. Now when I put my key in the ignition the dash lights, headlights - nothing turns on. It makes no sound when I press the start button. It appears to have no power at all. I checked the battery terminals and they are tightly connected, so I know it’s not that. Do you think this is a larger issue having to to do with the stator or is it a loose wire kind of deal? What do you think the move is at this point?

I’d definitely go through the wiring connections considering what you just had done. Check for any blown fuses and/or something touching ground. Also check the battery voltage, if it has any good juice it would at least try to start. So beings that it’s completely unresponsive it sounds like a connection being open or shorted out

Check the elec. plugs under the left neck cover, and at the ignition switch, could also be dirty contacts in the ign. switch.
