Sorry I'm new here is there someway to update the original post with that info? Probably should have included that. Thanks for the thought. I will defiantly update the forum when I get this fixed as I couldn't find any other resource on the web about this problem.
I would leave this posting exactly as it is, as you are giving probably the most information that you have to offer on the subject.
I am now thinking that if the battery is good and you have checked fuses and all seem to be good. Then we may have to go back to the original problem which was an intermittent switch. BUT
If you are NOT getting power to any circuit, then you have to go back to the power source, its fuse, or the ON/OFF circuit.
I am now thinking that perhaps it may not have been the switch, but maybe the connector, that the switch plugs into. Numerous things can go on in a connector such as condensation, rusty pins, loose pins, broken wires, etc. Sometimes electrical gremlins are hard to find, but sometimes they turn out to be simple fixes.
If it is not a problem, take a close look at the ignition switch connector.
Sorry, I can not offer more .
If you are anything like myself, then I know that you want this problem fixed yesterday.
But, I am sure that somebody will come along with perhaps a better trouble shooting idea, thus producing a fix.
Not promising anything, but if I can find an electrical schematic the I will try tracing the circuit. I do not have a maintenance manual for the Ninja 300, but I am sure that somebody does and perhaps they can trace the circuit for you and come up with an answer.
