K75s Electrical

Hello K People. Whilst measuring up for some handlebars for my `93 K75s the back of the ignition switch touched the bar clamps which made a horrible `crackling` sound and now I have no power. The little `blade` fuses are fine and the clock still works but nothing else. What have I blown?. Any help would be great, Thanks

Note to self, always disconnect the battery when doing anything close to the wiring.

It has been a while for me, but shouldn't there be a cover over the switch/wires ? Certainly not BMW's habit of leaving anything exposed like that.

Have a good look at the wiring at the switch first ,just because that is where the problem started...!

Check the grounds, Frame/Battery, I have seen it happen, grounds not too clean or tight at first then a short and suddenly.....no more ground or maybe.....just enough to run the clock.

If not that, then it is on to the relays.

Right that whenever any electrical problem found , then always first check the cable connection and if not so then check the switch or part. And none from this then surely battery problem.
