Ok so I rode to work last night, parked the bike, left work to go to the store to grab a snack around 7pm, came back parked the bike.
Fiddled with some suspension settings around 12am, went back inside.
Came out at 4am to head home and No headlights. Tail and brake light work fine.

Exactly what is happening is I turn the igition to on, and my signal lights come on, like marker lights, but will not flash if i use the switch.
The instrument panel is working but is not illuminated! Heres the kicker, if i hit the starter switch the panel illuminates, but only while the switch is pressed. If i put the kill switch to the no run position and hold the starter button the gauge illuminates and the signals go out as normal, one side will flash and if i try the other it makes the flasher buzz.

I have check the starter switch and it is good, I have checked the ignition switch its good, checked all the fuses all are good. I am Tired, been up since 11am yesterday it is now 7am today, and i really just want to get this fixed as i have to be back at work for 6pm.

If anyone could give me a copy of the Electrical schematic it would be greatly appreciated.

I road home in the dark with no headlights and it was not fun!!!

Thanks in advance, Bed time!!

Ok so looks like the issue is with the Ground bus connector in the main harness on the right side of the frame, I was measuring a 2.5ohm resistance between the sub connector ground wire and the chasiss ground, and i found the connector. Its all burnt and the tape is peeled away.
I didnt have time before work but ill take pictures when i take it apart tomorrow.

Yea, issue is as I said above, you most likely have a short in your main harness. On the right side of the bike beside the throttle bodies. Find it quick cause this issue smoked my ecu.

any updates on this?

have the same bike and just experienced this situation - it was 8pm (NYC time) so i didn't bother trouble shooting.
its a ground issue. i had the same trouble. turns out it was a ground wire on the starter button on the right side that had come loose. soldered it back and all was well again.
