Possible electrical issues

Anyone good with electrical? a week ago i got stranded, battery got hot and leaked acid, reg/rec was hot. bought new stator and reg/rec installed new parts and new battery. went to fire it up and fuel pump did not prime. headlights came on, but no display. it cranks over but wont start. fuses that i can get to under my seat are good.I dont know where any other fuses are to check. if anyone has ever ran across these issues please let me know. only thing i can think of is something burned out when my battery overheated?

2001 cbr 929rr
64k miles
stator and reg/rec are from Ricks motorsports. brand new arrived today.

Re: Possible electrical issues

Yes, the horn works with the ignition key on. the display has power, the background orange light is on. just no numbers like millage. one thought was it could have been my kill switch. but not sure. Thank you spagiratwink!

Re: Possible electrical issues

https://www.dropbox.com/s/piuvyn01wu...photo.jpg?dl=0 here is the photo, its the small white box, i found a blown fuse, replaced it and it blew when i turned the ignition key. so i am assuming its a short somewhere, is that a good assumption?

Re: Possible electrical issues

Hi Paddy , 20 amp, must be a short on that circuit, will have to check the red wire toward the rec/reg , and the red/green towards the instrument cluster , it has to be along those 2 wires , also red toward ignition switch, I'd start at the ignition switch first

Re: Possible electrical issues

Makes sense then, original problem was the connector from the stator to the reg/rec was melted together, i replaced the stator and reg/rec with new ones from ebay store Caltric, maybe it wasnt the parts, but it left me stranded with a boiled over battery, i replaced the battery, Reg/rec and stator from Ricks motorsports, should have been a quick install and fire up, but thats when i ran into my issue today about this short wire somewhere.

Re: Possible electrical issues

So i bought new fuses and replaced them, they are not blowing, but i still cant find the short.

I forgot to add i disconnected the bank angle sensor, the fuse did not blow, I reconnected the bank angle and it blew my fuse, is that safe to say is the issue?

Not quite yet. Bypass the sensor, see here on how to do it. If the fuse still blows, then it was not the sensor. If it doesn't blow, then it appears to be the sensor.

Re: Possible electrical issues

You now know which circuit has the fault; so progress has been made. I would suggest looking at the entire length of the circuit for any faults without removing any of the tape/binding holding things together. If you don't see any issues, then start removing the tape/bindings.
