I have an issue here I cannot figure out with my 06 sportster. Turn ignition on ..NO power goes to the bike. No horn, lights, NOTHING AT ALL..Battery
*Charged it
*Metered it
*Took it to local shop to have tested
*Metered tested - Tested Maxi fuse and all 5 fuses and switch board located under seat on right side
*Pulled each fuse out cleaned off for corrosion
Checked wiring to battery and ground everything looks good tests okay
So my thinking at this point...
Could it be a faulty ignition? If I had an electric diagram it would be a lot easier to test for this.
Is there a security system shut off? I do not have a key fob and if there was I would imagine I could get at least lights.
What am I missing here? Thank you for any and all help.

You just have to keep doing pin outs until you find it

Yes I have seen Ing switches fail

Buy the service manual with the electronic circuit diagram, it will help you considerably.

I ALWAYS purchase a service manual for whatever bike I happen to own. Harley does an excellent job in puttying out these manuals. Also, it always helps a little when selling the bike. Working on Harleys isn't all that tuff but there are a lot of tricks and techniques that are made clear by reading the service manual.
