Electrical problems?

I posted awhile back about my dead battery but had to go overseas because I'm in the AF...here's the back story (short version):

Bike was dead so I jumped it with my car and my (expert neighbor) crossed the the + -...batter was sizzling. I replaced the batter and fuses but when I turn the key on NOTHING lights up. I do not know much about the electrical system and I do not trust my neighbor at all to ask. Is it the ground wire that is causing this or more? Please help me out, it's riding season and I have the itch.

Thanks for your suggestions guys!

I have charged the new battery and still nothing...do you think that it's the rectifier? I really do not know what I should check or the order I should troubleshoot this problem.

Any pointers would be appreciated!

Thanks

Its the main system fuse. It is located on the positive battery cable just off the terminal on the battery. I believe on the 600RR its in a little black box with "FUSE" printed on it next to the battery itself under the main seat. This fuse is designed to pop and protect the rest of the electrical system from frying when this exact situation occurs.

oh my god i think you just fried your ECU dude, did you check the fuse box under the left midfairing cowl? never jumpstart your battery from another vehicle, remove the battery & recharge it.

Questions:

How did you charge the battery and for how long? Needs to be 5-8hrs ona 1amp charger. No "Quick Chargers"!

What voltage is the battery showing after you charge it? anything below 12.4v and the bike won't crank. You need 13.0-13.5v or higher on a good battery.

Have you had the battery load tested? If not, take the battery to a local AutoZone or Advanced Auto Parts and have them load test it.

Was the car running when you tried to jump it? For future reference I don't think the car should be running when jumping a MC. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. This probably wasn't what messed your up since the cables got crossed but it can help in the future.

No you are correct on that man.

Since it's not the fuse then im thinkin along the same lines as OveRRev, you may have just fryed the ECU or possibly the entire electrical system. Get yourself a multimeter and start testing EVERYTHING. Let us know how it goes...
