Just pulled, cleaned and reinstall a blocked carb to my CRF450x, hit the starter button and it started beautifully but then as it was idling for a very short time I heard what I think was a sizzle from the front area of my bike. and then it stopped with a complete loss of electrical power . nada nothing. checked the 2 fuses, swapped them out but they are ok?

So I have no power at all.

What next?

When you removed the fuel tank the fuel tap has snagged one of wires at the two plugs behind l/h radiator. Check all conectoins there.

Well actually I now very embarrassed!.
The problem was when I thought I was checking the fuse near the battery I was just pulling an reinserting the spare fuse in the rubber holder that holds the relay and the real fuse holder.
Changed it and it started first go.
Thanks for the sugestions.
