When it happened to mine a part of the headlights wiring harness had burned out and had melted together where the diff wires come together. Shop wanted to charge me out the azz plus spend a few hundred on a new harness.

I had no headlights, tachometer, spedo, my brakes lights and blinkers worked.

Got a used harness online for 70 bucks and a family friend replaced the burned out with stuff from the new(to me) harness.

If I wasn't as mechanically inclined as a potato I could explain this much better lol.

There's two wiring harnesses for your bike btw.

GoodguyCraig gave me a hand with it originally but we were looking in the wrong place and had replaced the main harness that runs through the body of the bike instead of the one up front.
If it flies, floats or you're better off renting.

Check the wiring that is soldered to the start switch at the throttle

Those 3 things are all tied into the same circuit. Do you have a voltmeter?

Take it to a shop to get it properly diagnosed. DIY after.
