So it's been a while since I've posted anything concerning the lack of power issue for my 2001 750F. In that time, I've replaced the ignition switch, main relay and the ignition control unit; all to no avail. I've tested every fuse on the bike and checked the kill switch/starter switch for continuity. All are good.

Right now when I turn the key to on, the clock in the cluster loses power and no lights come on. But when I disconnect the black connector at the front of the bike which connects the kill/starter switch to the main harness and turn the key to on, the cluster lights up normally with the neutral and oil lamp and the clock stays on. Hit the turn signals with the kill/starter switch still disconnected and the cluster lights flash but not the signal cluster lights. Hit the horn button, cluster lights go off until horn button released but no horn sounds. Battery shows 13V while on the charger.

At this point, I don't know what else to check. Unless anyone has any other ideas, I'm throwing in the towel and carting it off to the shop.

I don't know if you are still having this issue or not, but I had the same thing going on with mine. In my case the PO had wired the starter relay backwards. and with that no power to the bike when you turn the key. I'm at work ATM and don't have a pic of the starter relay but as I recall there is a B and an S on the relay relating to the main wires from the Battery and to the Starter. make sure that those are correct. This had me pulling my hair out until I realized what had happened. In the end, I scored a great bike for $350. 98 Katana 600. I am still working out the fuel system but expect to have it running this weekend. I hope this helps.

On the charger? That says nothing but, the charger works. Have the battery load tested. It's free assurance. Check all of your plug connections.....while you are there clean the connection points and grease the plugs with dielectric grease.
You need to trace the power source to find where it stops but, first the battery test.

Starter relay could be to blame. Took a $15 part to sort the problem. The other issue could be the side switch.
