electrical trouble

so I installed my pc3 the other day, and everything was working great.
but now my turn signals, horn, and brake light are not working. the green arrow indicators on the console for the turn signals doesnt even show. My running light however does work.
I checked over the wiring and saw nothing out of place. Any ideas?

all those are under one fuse, check your fuse. But you going to need to find out what made the fuse blow in the first place

And the half of me's all about apathy
And the other half just doesn't care

As you probably realize by now that everything under the tank is packed in very tightly. I know that this sounds very simple, but a fuse blows when it sees an overload condition. That could be something like an accessory added to the circuit (which I know that you didn't do) or it could be that while you were working under the tank and then putting everything back together, you pinched a wire that is being fed by that fused circuit. Remember, the frame of a motorcycle is considered......."ground potential", the same as touching something to the negative post of the battery. So, if you pinched a wire in that circuit and it was touching some part of the metal (frame, engine case, subframe, etc.) that would overload that circuit and blow the fuse. Hope this helps.

check your turn signal connections, I just had to fix mine yesterday after replacing about 8 fuses over a 3 month period.

I rigged my integrated tail light setup when I rebuild my bike, so I had some cleaning up to do. Any metal contacts exposed can cause the short, so bust out the electrical tape.
