Default Electrical Issue PLEASE HELP!

I have a KLX250 and I was out in the mountains the other day, and I noticed that the speedometer and digital display were flickering.....I figured it was just a loose wire and I would fix it when I got home.....Rode for about another 10-15 minutes and then the bike just died. The whole electrical system is dead. I have 12v at the battery......but everything else is dead...

1) I checked the negative ground cable and its securely connected to the engine
2) I checked the terminals on the battery and wiggled them, there is ZERO corrosion and they are nice and tight
3) I checked the fuses under the seat, the two for the fan and the ignition and the 20 amp main fuse.....all are good.
4) I checked the relay and there is 12v to it, but nothing coming out the other not sure if thats normal....

I am really stumped here, Im not an electrical genius, but I know basics. I dont havethe money, time or a truck to take it to a shop.....

Can someone suggest some other things I can check?
