2006 Street Glide. After riding all morning I parked it. went to turn it back on and the bike make a click noise as I pushed the start button. At that point it lost all juice. No lights, no nothing. I went...

If nothing, and I do mean nothing on your bike is working (you said "no juice") I'd suspect the main fuse or breaker has tripped. Look under the seat or behind one of the side covers for the fuse panel.

Good Luck

1990 HD FLHTCU ElectraGlide no power

On most electraglides, there is what we call an accessories wire at the battery positive post or the starter terminal where the postitive battery cable connects. This is usually a red wire of larger gauge and goes directly to the main circuit breaker. From there, it goes to the switch. Start at the copper terminal of your main circuit breaker and work backwards if you are not getting any power anywhere as you state.

Also check your ground to the negative side of the battery. Without a good ground, you won't get any power. If you have a DVOM (digital volt ohm meter) check from the ground lug on the frame to the engine. Sometimes if your repaint or powder coat your frame, you lose the grounding from the engine to the frame. Make sure all your grounds are good. Hope this helps, Good Luck, Steve

Bike has electrical issues

You hooked something up wrong. Go over your connections and grounding. It sounds like the starter is not getting juice. Is the starter grounded properly? Is the juice not getting to the starter? Is the problem maybe in the switch or another connector before the starter? trace all your wires, looking for connectors that may have vibrated apart. Check your battery charge level.
