Hi guys need a hand problem solving an electrical issue on a 87 softie. Battery had gone completely flat now charged. Turn ignition on and it keeps tripping out before even hitting the starter bottom - you can hear it click. No obvious loose wires etc?? What should I look at next? Thanks.

Seems to be the circuit breaker connected to the top left yellow wire terminal. Any idea where it goes to as its heading into the abyss :) Hoping not to have to rip the tanks off but guess I will. Thanks for the input to date Jerry and Dragstews

Excellent input, thanks! Will try the CB in that manner. Thinking this will be the only softie I will own as bought it to flip so haven't bought a service manual but if I cant solve it tomorrow will order one in. Thanks again Dragstews.

Thanks guys, instead of working on the FXST I spent the day riding the 85 now it has a faulty starter switch, no turn signals nor brake lights working. Looks like a week of electrical work. :)
