ok, so i checked the continuity on the ignition harness and it had power, i disconnected it to test continuity on the ignition itself, with the key in the on position and set my meter to low signal/power. it it did send signals to 2 of the 4 cables. but im not sure what it means. im assuming if there was a short there that i would not see any numbers pop up on the meter? and then i checked continuity on the stop/start switch, with my red probe on teh black red wire, only showed continuity to the white wire??

the alarm is spliced in to the White black wire which is letter D on the main fuse box. the main harness goes to teh tail lights, which i assume is were it gets its power?
That sounds about right to me matey,also a small video here for testing switches , although not motorbike but method the same, did you get any fob with the alarm?

Hi looks like they spliced into the ignition White/black power wire , could be if the short is in the alarm when you switch on it blows the fuse:|

Good Morning,

i took out all of the alarm. then reconnected teh tail lights to the original plugs. now the tail light and turn signals dont work, but the break light does work.

as far and the stop/run switch, i took it completely apart. i took the actual switch red switch off to see what it would do, i turned teh key and it didnt pop the fuse, i reattached the red switch, i then turned the key and flipped the switch to run, the fuse popped. so did i dint the problem? lol

Still no clock or display
On that alarm kit the break light wasn't touched, only the indicator lights and the rear light, so with taking out the alarms connector to the rear the lights wont work:wink

Again, thank you for all the help and linking the video. so if i removed the alarm and reconnected the wire directly it should be fine in theory? I did some test last night, but not sure if i did them correctly. Again, thank you for all your help!:laugh

So some how i need to bypass this to get the lights to work again i assume? turn signals do work! and brake lights.

Hi , was reading about the i900 ,and it seems it has its own internal BAS, and different forums have said it shouldn't be connected to the Black/White wire from the fuse box, for the alarm to work it has to be laid flat so as not to operate the internal BAS, but anyway still cant help feeling it has something to do with the pgm-fi circuit and where the short is, here is the basic pattern of the pgm-fi circuit ,maybe keep this in mind when investigating

Have you tried taking out all of the fuses in the box from A to F but leaving in D (ignition fuse) and turn on ignition, if it doesn't blow, start putting the fuses back in and if it then blows it might narrow down the suspect, if it blows with just ignition fuse in you will know where to investigate:wink

On the ignition side ,check the wires all the way down to the Starter Relay switch (Solenoid) and take that out to have a look at the wires around it, there's a lot of amps go through there to the starter motor, are any connectors touching ,melted:wink

When I get home from work today I will check the ignition relay and ignition switch.

Will have to look at that, always did before, any idea what I should be clicking in my user cp:|
In the CP -> Edit Options on the left-hand side which has the gear icon next to it.

First box will say "Login & Privacy"
The second box will say "Messaging & Notification"
In this box look for the "Private Messaging" box and within there make sure you have the checkbox selected for "Enable Private Messaging"

Or see the attached image.
