      I have just done a very stupid thing.

      While fitting a new hooter on my GV 650 I allowed a live wire to touch the frame, there was a short arc and now all electrics are dead. I am hoping it is just a fuse and have found where the main fuse is located, although not yet worked out how to get to it.

      Can I get an opinion on whether this is likely or is it possible I’ve caused more damage due to this.

      Panic over, I’ve got to the main fuse to replace it and everything seems back to normal.

      One strange thing I discovered was that both rubber bands that are supposed to keep both fuse holders in position were broken meaning the fuse holders were free floating with just the cables keeping them roughly in place behind the plastic panel.

      I hope youre okay now and electrics are sorted.

      Ive dealt with EFI bikes. They truly can be a moody woman at times!

      Luckily the live wire doesnt go to the ECU direct but buries itself in to main harness to link up with the horn switch.

      The fuse did its job in this case 👍
