    XL1200 intermittent no power (electrical)

    I have a 98 XL1200 with intermittent no electrical power.

    At the end of last year the ski started having a problem where I would shut it off and when I went to restart it there was nothing. No dash lights or anything. After a few minutes I could get power back and get it started.

    So I put it away for the winter and this spring I tested it in my garage and it started every time so I figured it was a fluke. Well When I went to launch it for the 1st time it didn't have any power at all again and I couldn't get it started t all. Battery is newer and jumper cables did nothing.

    I guess my question is if anyones had this problem before or even knows where I should start looking to fix it.

    Check for corrosion at ground wire. Check fuse in the electrical box. Unhook stop switch and check connections and continuity of the switch itself. And check out a wiring schematic. If I remember correctly the gauges must power up to bring ignition power on. Therefore if the gauges are taking a dump maybe the you aren't powering up the ignition??
