AfterWork on brake lights NO Center Stand

I have an 08 Lt and I installed a wigg wag to my rear brake lights, all went well until I took it out for a test run and my center stand would not engage. Also when I first start my bike I see a small electric bolt flashing for a moment or two in my upper right dash??.

So my thinking is I have shorted something out. I checked to see if I had power to the CS, none. I pulled the relay to the stand and I have polarity to # 1 and 2 so I think it is good. I bypassed the new wigg wag and rechecked all wiring for shorts, none found.

I would really be open to any suggestions form here.

Re: Work on brake lights on Center Stand

Well after the first post I went out into the garage and changed out one more thing and WALA! the center stand worked like new. I had bought and installed two led brake light bulbs and when I removed them and put the stock bulbs back in He Ha. Case and point if your putting new electrical things on your bike, Use a relay between it and your bike and all "should" be well. Sorry for all the commotion!
