The ignition switch may be bad. With a bad electrical connection in the switch it will cause you to have these symptoms.

I have a razor mx500 and it just shut off mid ride on a full charge and no longer responds it won't charge turn on or anything how do I know if it's a battery problem fuse problem or motor problem?

test regulator rectifier maybe. Or try different battery, and check battery terminals for green or corrosion. Check fuses in case burnt out and check wiring. if all okay then check motor.

Why wont my light turn on or anything when i turn the key, the battery has full charge

Check your fuses particularly the MAIN fuse. If they are okay then It could be that your ignition wiring is defective or ignition switch is shot.

Ignition does not respond when turning the key

I looked at info for 4.0L engine.
Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good.
In the first picture, check that 40 amp fuse, under hood fuse box, not only check the fuse, check the fuse circuit for voltage, hot all the time. Use a test light to check for voltage.
The diagram for ignition switch, the top wires are voltage going to ignition switch, the bottom wires are voltage from ignition switch with key in the proper position. You can see the wire colors. Do some testing.

Fuse short

You may want to check out your regulator. It "cleans" the power coming from the stator. You may be blowing those fuses because of that.

My honda vtx 1300 was just running went back out and turned key on and have no head light but all other lights and horn works nothing happens when i hit the start button

Sounds like a fuse let go!
Get an ohm meter and check your fuses. They should read 0 ohms (or whatever the meter reads when the leads are touched together)
Remember to pull the fuses first before testing them.
I'd check all the fuses while you're there.

If that doesn't show anything wrong, then check the ignition switch itself. Turn it on and off and wiggle it a bit. If the headlight flickers, there's something wrong in the switch, and you'll probably need to pull and clean or possibly replace it.

Turns over but wont start fuel pump not responding

Check All Fuses and Relays in the power distribution center under the hood and at the fuse panel inside the truck! Let me know if you find anything burnt!

With key turned on there is no power to anything. No lights no anything.

first check your fuse, if it looks good get a test light and double check it. A simple test light is the first thing i go for when i'm hunting down elec. problems.
Start at switch got power in? yes got power out? if not why not? if so work you way down till your lights won't like it up. If you need more help please feel free to let me know.
Happy Hunting

No power, instrument lights or anything, when I turn the key on.

I don't know about the type of bike you have but did you check to see if you hit the shut off switch when your hand slipped? If the only thing you did was have your hand slip on the switch you may have broken the switch.
