No power to ignition

I mainly use the TTR during winter but through the rest of the year I do the maintenance and take it on short rides to keep everything moving.

But yesterday I switched the ignition on and everything acted like a flat battery ie dull lights engine would barely turn.

Took the battery off and tested, all fine with the battery bearing in mind its on optimate all year round.

So put the battery back and now no ignition lights..... nothing.

I'm thinking its main fuse but puzzled as to why I got something yesterday on the dash but absolutely dead today although the battery is fully charged.

I would check the various earths and positives (to starter motor and solenoid), and the joints on the back of the ignition switch, for corrosion after checking the fuse.
Good luck!

Well I took old battery off and connected a car battery with jump leads.
All ignitition lights come on strong, couldn't find anything wrong with wiring eaths etc.
Pressed the starter button and it started straight away.
But then cut out with smoke coming from the leads.
More head scratching

All sorted, real problem was me.... I put too much trust in my battery optimate and battery charger that's supposed to indicate a well charged battery or poorly charged battery.
Nothing wrong with bike at all, just a faulty battery, borrowed a battery off my road bike and TTR started as normal as many times as I wanted.
Whilst tank/seat/panels were off cleaned frame and wiring connections for peace of mind.
And yes Johnyboy jump leads had rubber grip missing from handle, so you're prob right there.
