2007 SV 650 electrical issue

Saturday I rode about 60 miles, filled the bike up with gas before I pulled into the driveway and rode about 6 blocks home. I killed it to unlock the gate to move the bike inside the back yard. I go to restart it and it sounds like it has spark, the dash lights up, then hit the ignition and nothing, it loses all power. I try cycling the ignition/kill switch a few times and now I have no power and the dash does not light up.

I cracked it open tonight found a spare 25 amp fuse floating around in the bottom of the underseat storage that I can not find a home for, a roll of electrical tape that one of the previous owners was kind enough to stash, a rock, and then I jiggle all of the cables. None of this seems to do any good. Finally I check the battery and twist the screw on the black post one and a quarter turns until tight and the bike fired right up. I turned it off and tried again ten minutes later and it seems to still work.

Could it really be that easy a fix?

Yes. With out a solid ground you can get enough power to run things like lights and the dash but when you try to pull the amps needed to crank it all goes away.
Make sure both battery connections are tight and have no corrosion under the terminals.
