Need help with 2002 Polaris 700 twin with no electrical power

I was riding it and all of a sudden it just died the fans where still on and running but no lights or the gage cluster wouldn’t work. So I’m wondering if anybody has had these types of issues and would throw out so advice for what to check there’s no obvious broken wires or separated parts. My local dealer said it’d be $70/hr for them to look at it so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Grab a meter and start checking voltage at the battery and work out from there... Ignition switch, kill switch, breakers, etc. to determine where you're losing it.

You are in luck! Your ignition does not require DC power to function - it is self excited. The spark is killed by connecting the CDI module black wire to ground.

If you unplug the black wire and the engine runs, the problem is in the kill circuit. If there is no spark with the black wire disconnected, the problem is in the ignition system.

Unplug the black wire from the CDI unit and let us know the result.

Oh yeah, didn't think about unhooking the ground wire. That would actually be the FIRST thing to try.
