Greg, You need to immediately remove your non factory wires right at
the battery. Before the fire, rather than after it !!!
If that fixes the problem, then you know where to look. If it doesn't
fix it, then perhaps you have pinched a wire with the tank remove/
install. Or perhaps your battery just happened to short internally at
I put my bet on something in your added wires. Look for pinched or

I have autcom added to my bike (power through a fuse with the
negative on the battery).
So I took off the tank to add on gerbing electric gloves. I took off
the autocom system but left the wiring in place. I attached the hot
and negative directly to the battery. I replaced the tank with no
problems and did a short ride out and back (total ride 30 minutes no
The next morning I put back on the autocom and turned it on. I had
not plugged in the electric gloves yet. As I pulled out of the yard,
my bike went dead. Engine died and the electrics all went off. I
started it back up and made it through another light before it
I got it back to the house and know I'm trying to figure out what's
causing it to die on me. Since then I've flipped the switch on it
and it was slow to come up, but it did start. After a while of
running on the center stand, it died out again.
I did notice that I had not gotten both of the gaslines hooked back
up and have since broken one and will be replacing it today. Not
sure if that could have caused the problem.
Any ideas to help me start to figure out what's wrong?
