Electrician needed to figure this out..............
Since these items were all plug and play I didn't remove the Maxi-Fuse.
Fairing off, Bags off, Seat off, Side covers were off, gas tank still on.
Fairing removed, as working on my LED HEADLIGHT install, Kenwood Radio and CV B52 Amp install and LED Turn Signal upgrade, had the bike on the table, radio installed and plugged in, fairing still off. Radio worked just fine, AMP was not yet wired for power (cables not installed yet) moved on to install the turn LED bulbs, front and rear (fairing still off), turned on the key to test lights, signal lights worked fine. Then I noticed a gauge bulb half way out of the gauge housing and burned out, decided to replace them with LED bulbs. I left the key in the on position as I walk over to my LED bulb supply to get the new 194 LED'S, upon my arrival back at the bike while inserting the bulb back into the gauge housing, I heard a snap/pop sound and smoke started to come out of the air space in front of the battery, I immediately turned the key off, pulled the Maxi Fuse which was still good, I didn't blow.
What's under/near the bottom/front of the battery that would make a pop/snap sound and start smoking ? It got late last and I became totally frustrated when this happened, so I just walk away to return today with a clear mind set. Any advise/help is greatly appreciated as I haven't a clue as to where-what and why this happened.
