In going over possible causes and what I may have done.
Step one, bike ran as new, no problems, then lost all power going down road.
Step two, wile waiting to be picked up, I took things apart and found I put seat on black wire with yellow stripe, and pinched/broke it.
Step three, I didn't think anything of using the black wire with yellow strip to test the battery by touching it to the positive side, because the other side of it was connected to the neutral. I used the side that goes to the connector.
Step four, when getting it home, I reconnected black wire with yellow stripe, and got power to everything, but starter wouldn't engage. No neutral light on dash, I pulled in clutch, nothing, put up kickstand, bike started and ran, but still no neutral light, put kickstand down, bike died.
I jumped out kickstand and clutch safeties, and went for a ride the first time, 60 miles and stopped at a place, then 10 miles down road bike would loose power, I tried everything, for some reason I hit starter and it came to life and had to keep doing that to get it home. Played with what I could, and took it for a ride and it lasted 10 miles and same dying out and had to keep hitting starter to get home. When home it idles and can drive around farm yard in first and second with no problems.
