First time poster, long time reader. I have a 2005 VMAX. Last night I hopped on the bike and went to start it. I pushed the start button and it clicked a couple times but wouldn't turn over. Tried again, same thing. Third time trying all power went out. Checked battery, fully charged. Not battery. Checked fuses, no fuses blown, all good including main. Loosened the two screws on the start switch assembly on handle bar. Some power came on, could hear the servos (?) trying to their thing on start up but sounded like not enough power. Then all power cut. Wiggled the start switch again, some power came back on. Dash lights flicker and head light is on. Weak horn, again sound like not enough power. Goes out again. Wiggled start button again, some power came back on. But not enough to turn over. Confused and not handy with a multimeter.

Thanks for any suggestions,
Rob
