Zero electrical anything? I myself have had no experience whatsoever with the fuses on this bike. Such a sudden death sounds like a fuse to me but someone will be along in a bit to render a more knowledgeable reply. I get the impression that it'll wind up being something more of an irritation than a big deal. Lets hope I'm right and its not the stator. Good luck to ya.

Check battery voltage first, then fuses. Could have stopped charging, blown a fuse, or the switch is dirty/defective.

Also check the plugs under the left neck cover.

Turn the switch to the 'park' position, see if you get any lights.

Look at the main harness where it runs up the frame, around the neck and into the headlight bucket. My guess would be a wire rubbed through along there. Keep looking, I'm sure you'll find it.

Carl, you seem to be typing run on sentences and I'm not understanding what you're asking, are you still having the problem and did you check the wire harness to see if something rubbed through.
