hello all!!

I have a 1985 TRX 250 that suddenly has no electrical power. Last season everything worked great but when I pulled it out this year nothing when I turned the key on. Figured the battery was simply dead but after a load test its fully charged and holding a load fine. It kickstarts just fine and runs great and I can jump the solenoid and it cranks and starts but I have no indicator lights, head lights or electric start. I have checked the fuses, load tested battery, checked the ignition switch (has power both into and leaving the switch) as well as checked a few of the electrical connectors to no avail. Was hoping somebody had some ideas or info on known issues as I'm having trouble finding a wiring diagram that's not useless. thanks everyone!!

Download the service manual from the link in my signature block below
There’s a wiring diagram in the back but may be hard to read. I bought a printed manual from fleabay.
Check with members at atvhonda.com; several vintage owners over there

I think that if you put it away ok and then took it out this year and there was an issue that a rodent got in there and chewed some wires. Check your air box for a nest.
