Bought an 1125R off of a friend, and fellow badwebber, about a year ago.
He crashed it down the side of a mountain.

Obviously it ran when crashed, but hasnt been started since. Its been about 3 or 4 years now.

So I picked up a new battery at HD yesterday, put it in my street bike and it works fine.

But when I put it on this bike NOTHING.

Ive asked before - there is no cluster hooked up, but folks have said they'll run without one.
Ive checked all the fuses I can think of (there really is just the one box, right?) and all look good.

Everything seems to be plugged up.
There is no subframe currently on the bike, so sensors etc arent attached to the subframe like normal.

But what am I missing?

Key was broken off inside of ignition during crash, but its in there and I can put a screwdriver in the slot and it'll turn etc.

I dont know what I can do at this point, I need yalls expert help

check power thru the headlight fuse.
Remember you need the headlight fuse to run the starter.

You can pull that fuse and the motor will stay running but need it to run starter.

Where is said fuse?
I didnt mention it, but there isnt a headlight on it right now - damaged in the crash. Could that be the issue?

Check the wires on the ignition switch, they my have been damaged in the crash.

well Will, you may have hit the nail on the head here.

Went out to the garage to check those wires, as well as the fuse for the lights (which was fine), and what did I discover - the ignition wires are hooked up to NOTHING.
Four wires (with little metal ends) just dangling there. Had never even though about that before, just overlooked it.

So now the issue is - where do they go?
All wiring to the front of the bike is there, just not sure what plugs in where.

As I said, these wires each have a little metal connector thing on them, but I dont know which one plugs where
HELP!!!!

Any chance those wires came off the ignition switch? Common failure for a breakage there. A picture is worth a thousand words...

You can either, try and find out what wire goes where or, buy a new one, https://shop.newcastlehd.com/part/y072402a8
or get one on E Bay.

I have a spare ignition with the broken wires like Bubba's, I'll have to see if I can figure out which wire is which pin. From there it should be as simple as putting a new connector on and connecting it. It probably is in the electrical manual too

the rest of the plug? still plugged in perhaps?
if you were trying to repair w/ the old plug.. the red wires would be interchangeable?
when I did my repair.. I bought a replacement ignition switch off ebay. (I'm bad about that.)
I haven't used it.
I bet I could detect the location of the other 2 wires if one was trying to rebuild the plug

edit: oops, Froggy's on it : ).. just saw it; I should read better
