Recurring theme: electrical issues following 14" Malo bar install
I read a thread almost identical to my issue but didn't see any resolution. I installed 14" Malo bars on my 15 RGS yesterday morning. I went riding and everything was fine all day. Later in the day when I was "thankfully" home I decided to play with the Boom audio system and set up my blue tooth connection. After turning on the key and watching everything pull up I followed the instructions and hit the "home" button on the left hand control. The screen went blank and the bike refused to turn over.
I proceeded to take the guage cluster off thinking maybe I had a bad connection, unplugged everything and plugged it back in, turned on the key and everything came up like normal. Turned on the ingnition switch, heard the fuel injection kick in but when I hit the run button everything died. Now with the key in the neutral position I can hear the computer kicking on. Completely confused. It all worked perfectly all day. My first thought is I pulled one of the wires loose while routing through the handlebars and simply making a bad connection but after hearing one guy talk about getting his ignition tumblers off? I'm not sure what to think. I just don't understand how it can run perfectly all day and then take a complete dump like that.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
