1986 yfm 225

Hey guys. New to this forum, and new to this machine. I've got a 1986 Yamaha Moto 4 225. 2 wheel with hi/lo and reverse with electric start. Non pull. It's sat for awhile before I bought if off another fellow, it ran okay, went for a long ride, and all of sudden I had no lights. No neutral. No headlights. Nothing. Battery is new. New cdi box was installed today and still nothing. Circuit breaker looks fine and the main fuse looks good as well. Any ideas? I'd like to get it back to work bwfore the snow flies! Thanks.

TYOG, it might be a bad ignition switch or wire from the ignition switch. Some switches have 1 wire to the start button and 1 to the light(s)
