Okay so here's the issue that I am having. I recently put a keyed ignition on my 03 WR450. When I did that I connected all four wires on the key to ignition To my button ignition that originally comes on the bike. When I did that I think I fried something or blew a fuse. But I don't know where it's at. The issue that I am having. Is even if I put a brand new button ignition on their. It comes factory. The lite on the button will not lite up and my electric start Does not work either. I have to kick start it. Even with a brand new button. So I know it has to be somewhere in the wiring and not with the old button. Where are the fuses or is there a fusible link somewhere in the wire.

Can you provide some sort of sketch for the wiring you did. I had a 03 WR and am familiar with the power button. Two of the wires are for system power and the other two are for the light in the switch. There is a potential to connect power directly to ground if you don't wire it correctly resulting in a blown main fuse. The main fuse is under the seat near the battery. If your key switch does not have a light then you only need to connect two wires through the switch: red and brown. If you inadvertently connect red/black to black (the wires for the button light) through the key switch, you will short out the CDI unit which does not have a separate fuse.
