Eventually get the idea to bump start it. Finally get home and look at the problem further. I put a meter on the battery, and it has plenty of power. When I turn the key on all voltage drops.... Now its not the generator because it runs with no power from the battery.
Now what could be causing this? Bad ground>???
I recently had the same problem, it turned out to be the starter relay switch, it is on the right hand side of the bike near the exhause and has a fuse in it. I replaced that and I was good to go.
