Default No power

I went to start my bike with a new battery and nothing. The clock in my CBR f4i speedometer is blinking but nothing else. No lights, horn, signal, Nada.It wanted to turn over before I started fixing things on my bike but nothing now. Do I need to strip all of my wiring and rewire it??? Man that is going to be a pain. I imagine its time for a service manual huh?

Is the battery charged? Check your voltage and battery connections first.

I took an ohmmeter and the battery has power-it is new anyway-so I tested the positive cable where it leaves the battery compartment and enters some sort of junction. It has power up to the junction. Which means its good connection. But the ohmmeter went backwards on the second part of the junction where it branches to the other wires. I mean I have a wire going to my speedo and its clock turns on but nothing else turns on and I mean absolutely nothing. Any ideas?

If you redid your whole wiring have you check for power at the ignition? Just check it with a current tester to see if it lights up so you can knock that out of the problem.

I assume you mean the needle on your meter went in the opposite direction or read in a negative number while reading voltage, right? If so, then something is connected wrong or a part is burned out. Normally DC voltage doesn't fluctuate. You may also have reversed your probes.

What are probes? With this being an electrical problem it should just because matter of fixing a broken circuit right? It should only because hard as finding the broken link

Is your test meter a multi-meter? Probes are another name for the two wire leads that you use to check voltage with.
