2013 Foreman Electrical issue

When I turn the key to the on position nothing happens. I have checked and replaced the battery. Checked all the fuses. Changed the diode. And pulled all my hair out. (prolly cussed a little too)
I am at my whit's end. I even bought and changed the ignition switch. Does anyone have any insight?

Use a test light and make sure you have power on both sides of the fuses and inspect the wires going into and from the fuse box. I've had a few where a wire was corroded in two under the fuse box.

So, taking your advice I checked and sure enough the fuses had no power. Turns out I left the negative wire off of the new starter I just put in. Thank you for your help. It is what led me to find the problem. I am grateful for your help.
