Re: electrical short - tail light fuse blown
It has been some time since I was on here last. Like Nov 05 when my problem first started. Re cap, tail light fuse would blow. I checked it out, and thought it was my after market blinkers. Upon further review, I determined it wasn't but thought it was time for the pro's to take a look at it. I had used the trouble shooting tips in the book, but no dice. I took it to the shop, and they found nothing wrong and side it was just fine. I said if that's the case, then I want an extended warranty, which they sold me for $650. I didn't get five mile away before the fuse blow again. Now fast forward for the next few months my bike was in and out of the shop for the same problem. The service mgr girl was a complete ideate. She could only see the after market blinkers as the problem. Because she was unable to see anything else nor did she want to. I informed here that if you unplugged the blinkers the fuse still blew, which means the problem was ells where. Basically she didn't to and couldn't fix it. I left in frustration and waited a few months while navigated through my pending divorce. I returned to the shop to find all new personnel. The whole shop had been let go. I brought my bike back and it was determined that it needed a wiring harness, which the warrantee covered. I'm on the road again.
There is more but I've written enough. I just want to say thanks to all that originally responded to my calls for help. The three which I still have emails from in my inbox are as follows:
If I missed any other responders I'm sorry these were the only three email left in my in box.
The shop even gave me a $250 off my new Akrapovic black carbon fiber slip on- not bad, so now I'm back on the road and rolling hard.
P.S. Ninja's only wear black
