FJR 1300 '08 no start

Hey

I own a FJR 1300 from '08 and seem to have run across a problem. I can turn the ignition over and have power to all lights and the Neutral indicator and all other finctions , but no start up of the bike, no sound, no dial spin or start up sound. Any advice?

How many miles on this bike?
So, if I read this correctly, the instruments don't cycle (no dial spin), and the starter won't work, and I'm assuming the fuel pump doesn't cycle......
Could be many things...... kill switch is in OFF (or has an issue), Ignition or fuel injection fuse blown, poor ground connection (ground spider issue), bad ignition switch. Can you move the windshield up and down?
Without knowing more, I'm leaning toward a ground spider issue.... there are a few threads, perhaps start with this one.

On my '07, dial spin occurs with the kill switch in off. I'd being checking ground spiders too.

Solved the issue, it was a rather stupid problem that I didn't see, I feel like a noob. Ignition Fuse was fried, thanks for the replies though!

Don't worry, many tend to jump over the simple stuff thinking there's a bigger problem. glad it's solved, but at some point if you haven't already, inspect those spiders and use some contact paste on them. Prevention ya know.

Yes, but why did the fuse blow?
You would not want this to happen while riding...
It's the electrician in me I guess.
