Electrical problems

Alright those who have any idea of what's going on I'm all ears.

I took a ride to my favorite restaurant in Airlie Beach, had a coke and chips, said goodbye to my friends, started the bike all good got suited up, the engine stopped. That was a sign something was wrong.

My dash panel only showed the indicators on, the high beam light on, and fuel gauge flashing.

I did not have fuel pump priming, wind shield raise or lower, no starting, or any relays working, no horn.

When I turn the key on the taco and speedo, do there prestart check, all 4 lights come on , in the speedo, but the neutral light, and high beam indicator light stay on.

The neutral goes off when put into gear.

The sidestand switch is ok, clutch switch ok,

Any suggestions please,
I have a feeling it my be the ignition switch, or the ECU.

The year & model of your bike are.....? It DOES make a difference. If it's a Gen2 you have the classic symptoms of a spider bite.

06 fjr, never had anything like this before. I had to replace the clutch basket, and oil water pump chain resently, only done 600km since repairs were completed.

Sounds like a ground spider problem. You will have to locate them all and clean them up, apply contact paste. Assuming of course one is not fried beyond repair. There are several threads on the subject.

Probably unrelated. I suit up first because I don't like idling the bike that long.

Ridden wet. Put up hard.

I'd first check it isn't something as simple as a loose battery connection. Wouldn't hurt to check the ground spiders regardless and do some preventive maintenance.

Up date,
I have an old friend from my school days, electrical technician, he has checked all the relays and I have been looking for any signs of electrical overload, all's well so far. I've checked from the ECU, all through to the head lights, no problems found so far, I've cleaned any earth connection, still the same.
Tomorrow I'm going to look at the ignition switch, I still get the feeling it's the ignition switch, we'll see.
