No Ligts no ignition, checked bat and fuses?

I got hom after a 2 hour ride, parked bike in front yard, when I went to put my bike away and turned key on, I had no indication of power. I checked the battery and fuses, both checked out OK. I tried to turn the key several times with no response. Has this ever happened to anyone else ?

How old is the battery? Check the the contact points for corrosion, make sure everthings tight. Last time I had been riding for about 4 hours when it happened, corrosion on cable ends, time before that bad battery.

Yes, there is a male/female connector located with the fuses. It may look locked together, but pull it apart and then put it back together again tightly. This is your main connection. Mine did this a couple times on and off till I figured it out. try putting some di-electric grease in there to help displace moisture. I used a small zip tie to keep the two ends pulled together tightly. Never had another issue after that.

Previous ride was a 2007 KLR Black/Silver, I miss it..
Looking to get back into KLR's sometime soon.
