    Lightbulb ignition key on but no lights on dash

    hi guys

    when i turn the ignition key on there is no lights on the dash.
    fuses: checked
    battery: checked
    cable connections: checked

    i took the bike for a push and tried to c if it'd start like that. it did. drove on it approx 100m and it stopped. then i tried to do the same thing once more with no joy! the key is on but still no lights?
    what could it be?

    Thanks

    Have you checked the connections on the bottom of the ignition barrel? They should be fine but just in case.

    So the bike doesn't start either? What's your battery like?

    No lights on the dash... at all? So the neutral, sidestand, oil pressure etc... don't work? Does the tacho and temperature gauge work? Anything else not working on the bike, like headlights, brakelights? You've checked fuses yeah?

    Need more information, otherwise it's a less helpful game of guessing

    Needs more information. What happened when you push started it? I'm guessing the starter isn't working either?

    Yogi:
    -Have you checked the connections on the bottom of the ignition barrel? no i haven't. what could go wrong there?

    Tromac:
    -So the bike doesn't start either? it doesn't
    -What's your battery like? battery is sound

    Drew:
    -Dash bulb? bulbs are fine

    Eclipze:
    -No lights on the dash... at all? no lights at all
    -So the neutral, sidestand, oil pressure etc... don't work? they don't
    -Does the tacho and temperature gauge work? no
    -Anything else not working on the bike, like headlights, brakelights? don't work
    -You've checked fuses yeah? all fuses checked

    dayeve:
    -What happened when you push started it? the first time it started with me on the bike ,all lights went on, drove a little with choke on, stopped the bike, gave a little throttle and then it suddenly died. the second time only temp. speedo and rpms bulbs went on when the bike was trying to crank up
    -I'm guessing the starter isn't working either? does not work

    ....how possibly the ignition could go broken (if it is the ignition) through the night as i was riding on my cbr the day before, and alll i did, i left the bike on its place in the parking lot :O ? i cannot understand that

    Check the battery terminals are bolted tight.
    Makes sure the negative lead from the battery to chassis is bolted tight.
    Can you confirm you checked the main 30A fuse, the one near the battery (not the spare, the one in use).?

    Do you have a multimeter?

    -Can you confirm you checked the main 30A fuse, the one near the battery (not the spare, the one in use).? yes, i took all the fuses and checked them under the light if they are burned, they weren't.
    -Do you have a multimeter? i thought about this just now and i will borrow it just to make sure the correct voltage is in the battery

    will double check all this eve. guys and come back to u. i'll try to record all and youtube it so u'll have more live info

    Makes sure the negative lead from the battery to chassis is bolted tight. +1 to that

    but, follow the main wire that runs over the airbox, and there is a little offshoot wire, that attaches to the frame on the RHS. make sure it is bolted super tight. i had the same problem as you, and this was the cause. basically just a grounding wire.
