RC51 Won't Start

This has not been my week for electronics. Anyway, I was riding the other night and when I got home I put it in neutral and got off to open the garage door. I turned around and the headlights on the bike went out and it shut off. As of now, neither of the headlights will turn on and the starter isn't working. The fuel pump primes and the turn signals/brake lights all work fine. I'm pretty sure it's a fuse of some sort, but I just wanted to see if anyone else had any similar problems.

The headlight fuse has to be operational for the bike to start.

Start there & let us know

my 929 had blown a fuse for the healights and turnsignals and gave the same scenario... no clue why it did but when I checked it it was black and the wire was separated .. replaced and it was fine... I've had other electrical issue but they were to do with a short in the shutoff relay harness or the battery being weak.... and no not all at the same time....

I had a few minutes this morning, so I pulled off the seat to have a look. So far all I see is the battery and a single 30A fuse which is fine. I'll try to pull the battery out tonight and see if I can find more fuses.

The fuse box is on the left hand side directly under the left cowling & infront of the big washer bolt that holds the fairing to the bike
