    May I ask who did your paint?
    Do you have their contact info?
    Thanks

    I don't think he would have had a problem if they weren't trying to use the old wires in the handle bars. The colors don't match, and it's tough to figure out which wires are coming and going through the switches. Plus the fact all the lights were burned out.

    Ahh..makes sense!

    It funny all the lights burnt out but it sounds like they weren't LED so that makes a little more sense. LED lights in the 04 and ups handle 18v much longer than an old school bulb would.

    All but the front signals were LED, including the dash lights. I believe when the VR went out, it was putting AC current through the system.

    Ended up having to replace the ignition module too. Went with a Dynatec as it was in stock rather than the Crane Hi4.

    Yep. One more item to replace: the transmission sensor that sends signal to the speedo. Gotta do some research on that. I would love to pick up the adjustable one.
