Electrical issuet

I was installing a headlight modulator on my 1994 K 1100 Lt SE everything was working so I put the fairing back together and when I went to start the bike it turnred over then everything went Black. I tested the battery and it was totally gone 0 volt showing on meter. I check fuses on side and all are fine. Is there a master fuse some where else that might be gone? I recharged the battery over night and got it up to 10 volts and installed it but no response at all when I turned the key. I'm installing a new battery tomorrow.

Re: Electrical issuet

I think it is a coincidence that your battery failed just as you did that work and they are not related. If you went to 0 on the battery it has an open in it somewhere or a really dead cell. Charging it up to only 10 v over night and the fact you put it back in and got nothing is a sure sign it is dead. Time for a new one.

Problem solved. When I was installing modulator I unplugged the small parking light above the head light once I reconnected it problem solved.
Thanks for the input.
