electrical scare

went out for a earlly spring ride and while stopped at a light my aux charger plug coming out of side cover (for trickle and vest plug) accidently touched my rear exhaust pipe and i didnt notice till i seen the smoke and flickering lights "holy ****" what was that. bike didnt stall or anything it just cooked the plug till there was no more contact, soooo a question for you electrical guys do you think any damage has occured, rode another 25mi home and things seemed ok?.

Probably just damaged the plug and may have blown a fude?

Did the dealer remove the plug from the side cover or did you? The owners manual states to secure it in a safe location. Whoever removed it from the side cover is responsible IMHO!

Yeah I would guess blew the fuse only and messed the connector up.
