    vstar 650 no electricity when key is turned to on

    Hi All:
    I have a 99 vstar 650 that ran well today until i arrived home. I shut the bike down for five minutes and then attempted to start it to drive into the garage.
    When i turned the key there was no indication of power. The light did not come on , no neutral light , no horn available.
    I checked the battery for loose connection but all seems good.
    the earlier starts were uneventful and cranked over easily.
    short? loose wire?

    Short maybe but not likely.
    Loose wire, possibly. That happens fairly frequently with the main battery cables (at either end) even if they appear clean and tight.

    Most likely that the battery just went dead.
    Also possible that the main fuse is blown or loose.
    Don't believe everything that you think.
