1987 trx250 electrical issues

I've acquired a 87 trx250 fourtrax, put a new charged battery in it and have no power when I turn the key. None of the lights come on including the headlight. Any suggestions would be great. Looked over the wiring to make sure I had no broken or cut wires and they all look good......

Thanks for all the info, found my issue. My ignition switch was coming apart, pushed it back together and the oil and neutral light come on. Starter button also works, guess my next investment is a new switch ????Thanks again
I had a similar issue, I ended up spraying WD40 in the ignition barrel, walked away, tried it the following morning and it worked. When I checked it out that day, all the plastic on the bottom of the barrel had gone brittle with age.
