Main fuse under the seat. Did you check it? What year s KLR?

My Kaw Barn - 2004 KLR, 2006 Concours (sold), 1997 Bayou 400.

Not to be a wiseacre or to insult your intelligence, but . . . kill switch?

klr4evr illuminates a worthwhile possibility, blown main fuse. Otherwise, some electrical power (e.g., brake light) might still be available.
