push de button but bike no go

I am hoping that some one has a great, simple - Duh I shoulda thought of that - fix for this:

I went out to start the bike the other day turned on the switch cluster lights came on turned it on and hit the start button - the cluster lights went out and nothing happened - I have since checked the battery - which is completely charged - and check the ground wires that I know of - but since the lights went out - they have not come back on.

any suggestions would be most appreciated

That can't be my bike - it aint movin'

Main fuse blown? 30-amps, I think, behind the left side cover.

Try checking the Main fuse (30A) inside the junction box, Located under the left hand side cover. If its blown you still may have an issue, you could try replacing it and see if it happens again.

well - that was a good start - the 30 amp fuse was ok a bit heat stressed but still ok - however the ACC fuse was quite a bit melted (prob what stressed the 30 amp next to it) and quite blown - what does that even go to?

That is the accessory fuse. I think that means everything except the tail light and headlight

Do you have spares on the bottom?

If so just pop one of those in and see what happens

I checked the frame ground - it is good - I also threw in a spare (good) fuse and still nothing. I also wiggled the key around nothing there either.

The ACC fuse huh? Thats interesting. I cant find in the schematics what that fuse accually does. However this is what I did find, mayby it can help. Go to the second page of the post from the link below. I took a photo of the internal schematic of the JB, there is also another post of the same thing that is in color but a bit harder to read, that one will tell you whats what inside the JB. Item 21 is the ACC fuse, 22 is the main fuse. Pin 1 on the 8 pin connector is the power going into the JB, should be the WHT/R wire. Pins 3a and 3b would be the output via the ACC fuse. I dont know, is there even any wires in those slots? If the ACC fuse blows then it would have to be a problem coming from those two pins. Unless there is a problem internal to the JB.

There are two sets of spare acc leads on the bike. One set by the headlight bucket, and a second set under the right side cover. Not sure if that what the acc fuse is for or not.
