Default No starter, lights, nothing!

I have an 82 Nighthawk 750 and all of a sudden, nothing, no ignition, no horn, no lights, no anything. I checked the battery, got 12.8 Volts, cheched the 30A fuse under the left panel, OK, checked the fuses in the front, OK, I am stuck, am I missing something? I have done everything the book said with no luck. It worked perfectly yesterday. Please help. Billy from Phoenix

Check the ground on the frame. Pay attention to the crimp. Also, check the main connector in the harness - sometimes these connections will corrode a bit, build resistance and get hot (which causes them to corrode, which will build more resistance and get hotter, which will.... you get the picture).

AirHawk speaks sooth. Check the ground and all the connections on your wiring harness. Things have a tendency to corrode away and work loose after 28 years.
