Right, I've just swapped an XB lightning tail onto my 1125CR, and was trying to start it up, but no luck. The display turns on, I heard the fuel pump, but it doesn't start. No clicking or anything, the battery is good and freshly charged. Kill switch and all fuses checked. It's as if I'm not pushing the ignition button. Also, the brake light doesn't turn on with the lever or pedal. I swapped the connection and tested the light, that's fine. It's as if something isn't connected somewhere, that powers the ignition and the brake light. I only disconnected 4 plugs and they're all back together. Any suggestions?

Horn, high beam and rear indicators also don't work. I suppose there is one thing that these share, with nothing else.
