Situation: I have a 2007 Kawasaki Ninja ZX6R and it won't start. It's definitely an electrical problem because nothing turns on, lights up, or the like. I recharged the battery, checked all the fuses, and replaced all only the only one that was broken. Non of that solved the problem. There is a low jack system installed and after talking to my dad, he thinks some kind of fail safe was engage of somesort after I attempted to jump start it. I don't think this is reason. Buy whatever works and his input is noted. Anyways, before I take it into a shop and pay money for mechs to diagnose a problem and pay more to fix that problem, what do you think could be the problem?

As you are finding out, electrical problems are the most difficult and frustrating to diagnose. The first thing to do is to get your hands on the electrical schematics for your bike and a multimeter. Since you're getting no power anywhere, there is a main switch, relay, fuse, connection, or ground that is stopping everything. I didn't see anything on the Lo Jack web site that says it's used to disable the bike. We can give you guesses on things to check, like the ignition switch, but your best bet is to get the schematics and start at the battery to see what's preventing power from getting through. You might check on Kawasaki forums in case this is a common problem on you bike.
