Go thur all your harnesses and inspect every inch of them for pinched wires...

Make sure ALL your grounds are good...

Take your hand controls apart and inspect the wiring there...

I'd move on to the ignition circuit. Do you still have an ignition switch in it?

it has the switch in the housing on the bars. never really use it just keep it in run and use the key to start. so might have to replace the switch then. would the switch cause everything to go out though

The switch closes the circuit to provide +12v to everything in the handlebars, is the best way I can describe it. Think of it this way, when the ignition switch is in the off position, what has Power? (I can't remember if the brake circuit has power with the switch off)
