as the title said I went well past 12 oclock on the drz . to make it short, I ripped off the tail light and had to get out of the area in a hurry ( people were calling the cops). while "getting out in a hurry" the bike died and I saw a little puff of smoke come from under the insterment pannel. when I got it all apart at home the fuse by the battery was blown and the wires that plug into the clutch safty swich, ignition and kill switch/blinker controls were all melted together!! . the wires in the tail light were all touching and I thing that is what did it. The wires are only melted just behind the plugs. I don know were to go next. the wireing harnes is like $300 and I dont even know if my CDI is fried or not. how do I know if the CDI is still good? Is there a way to save money buy cutting all the wires and putting new plugs on the ends? I know I would have to check every wire on the bike for exposure/melted spots. I can hold my own with mechanical skills, Iv never taken a motor apart but I have no problem giving it a shot. Iv done the basic mods that most people do on the DRZ. I am no electrician by any means. that stuff drives me nuts some times.
