We aren't experts on your bike, but electrical problems are fairly universal. How old is your battery? A fully charged battery should register at least 13 volts. You can try jumping it from a car battery with the car engine not running. If it cranks, the problem probably lies with your battery.

I recently had a battery go bad and it exhibited the symptoms you describe. It had full voltage but zero amps, so I would suggest you check the amps on the battery. If that doesn't get you in business, check your ground and other electrical connections. Clean them with contact cleaner, apply dielectric grease, reassemble, and make sure the connections are tight. Good luck.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

Check the ignition switch. It should have at least one wire at 12V always and more wires at 12V with ignition on.

I had a 1991 zx600 that had a blown main fuse. Not too sure how close the wiring would be but check to see if there is a fuse at the solenoid, on mine you just unpluged the solenoid and the main fuse was right there.

Garage
start at the panel that is not working and work back from there until you find power or a bad ground ,sounds like a bad connection or a switch problem,it is just going to require some hunting.

Is it a digital LED display dashboard or an analog dashboard? I would assume an analog since the bike is an 89 model. If analog, do the RPM and MPH dials work? If they do, then maybe its just a light bulb gone out on the dashboard.
