If its a new battery & you're not getting power to anything.....its definately your main fuse. Trace the positive battery cable away from the battery until it hits a junction. There will be a 30amp main fuse in there somewhere. You may have to pull off a cover to see it.

Make sure you connected the positive to the positive/ negative to negative poles on the battery. If you didn't do that (it should have arced) it would blow the main fuse. The main fuse should be somewhere near the starter relay or attached to it. Should be a 30a fuse and usually has a spare with it.

I'd take up the offer from Tim to help you out if you're able to get to his shop.

Check the main fuse, should be the green one. I had the same problem on my bike.

there will be a little you can turn. probably black. it should be under the tank, but you should be able to reach it without pulling the tank off, it usually kind of points to one side.

here is the best pic i could find. its the gold at the bottom, but yours is probably black, by the way, this is a pic basicly looking up from the bottom. the big grey things are the bottoms of your carbs.

when you set it, if its too high, it might take too long for your revs to drop down, or itll want to stick at 3-4k, too low and it will just die while idleing. good luck.!
