WHAT The......F

Had big install day yesterday. Block off plates. Removed ais, removed exup cables and exhaust, mounted graves slip onand installed woolich hardware..everything accordingly spent 1.5 hrs double checking and reassuring i was good to go. Noticed low beam wasnt working but high beam was didnt pay it any mind thought ballast was acting up the HID kit is off my triumph about 2 yrs old. Today both headlights not working started forum surfing found 15a fuse is blown swapped it out started bike no headlight removed the fuse blown again ok replaced it. Now bike wont turn over wtf...removed the fuse blown again reinstalled oem bulbs still wont crank. Noticing a sort of snap from the rear everytime i start the bike not sure if normal never paid attention but now a 15a fuse for headlights leads to bike not starting...

the fuse is blowing for a reason, either an overage or a short. 15a is a fairly big fuse to blow, I wonder if itís possible you damaged something else electrical further up the circuit? Have you checked the regular / other fuses?

I'd check and replace all the fuses
Disconnect the ballasts
Try starting it up and then troubleshoot from there
I have the service manual in PDF if you need so you can see how the electrical is laid out, let me know if you need it.

This is probably starter relay "snap". Measure if voltage gets to starter, if not then see service manual electrical diagrams and measure if you have voltage at relay coil when start button is pressed.
Headlight fuse cannot affect anything other than main fuse, but that must be ok since fuel pump works.

Checked the other fuses nothing out of place. Always unhook negative terminal for all work i do on the bike. Archer said hids do bug with the zx10 not sure i put a 30a in there to see what happenes. Wondering if all hids are universal or if the kit feom my daytona is to much for the zx10.

Got the bike started i hooked my truck up to the bike let the battery sit for a few minutes after that i jumped the starter relay bike started right fine left everything alone and let the bike just run for 15mins. Unhooked the cables turned bike off and it fired right back up. Not sure what the issue is still, but shes running no warning lights and headlights working again well the high beam working low isnt think the ballast is acting up if i cant get it going swapping my old bulbs in

Is it possible during Woolich install that something got wired incorrectly? This sounds like a bad ground?

I wouldn't be putting a 30amp fuse I would be trying to find what caused that 15a to blow!you have connected something wrong or jammed a wire when mounting everything up!start from the beginning and triple check all connections!the 15a blowing like that is that feed is overloaded!the feed has been crushed and earthing out!or you have connected something wrong in your travels today!DONT just start putting higher amp fuses in that's when wires can melt mate
ZX10RArcher and smurfslayer like this.

Unlikely. The wiring install is pretty straightforward KDS connector to KDS connector on Type 13a harness, extension to ECU pin and back to Type 13a harness. He has sucessfully flashed his ECU so if something was stuffed up in the install he wouldn't have been able to flash the ECU or encountered issues.

I think there is something that got pinched during the block off install and is grounding out or else he has a problem with the ballasts either too high of wattage say 55W vs 35W or a problem internally with one of them especially if it is a lower quality kit. I asked him to disconnect the HID ballasts and see what happens. *Shrug*
