never trust fuses just by looking,pull fuses and check with meter or just replace fuses and see,best thing to have when checking power is a 12v testlight,looks like an icepick,available in any auto parts store or even wal-mart

Sounds like the dog bone fuse is bad, or the connections around it are bad.

ok checked the dog bone and it was ok ,. fixed problem was tracing stuff and friend stopped by and said "why dont you check the fuse box and unplug it " i did not see the plug before but i did unplug it and wow was it messy so took a points file to the connections and every thing worked even better then when i got the bike 4 years ago .

thx for the input all
