Looking for some assistance here. I recently accidentally let my battery run down to completely dead, on my 08 Bonnie. I attempted to jump start the bike and get it running from my car battery.
My first attempt at this worked fine, i let the battery charge for about 10 minutes then started the bike, all lights worked as they should and bike started as long as it was connected to jumper cables.
As soon as i disconnected the cables and gave bike any throttle at all it died. I then reconnected the jumper cables. When i went to start the second time, i found that no electrics worked on the bike.
I took off the side cover and found the fuse box, the main 30A fuse was blown, i replaced the fuse and as soon as i hooked up the jumper cables it blew again.
I then purchased a 15a trickle charger to charge the battery. I left it on the charger for 48 hrs and i don't believe the battery is charged at all, because the bike battery will not blow the 30a fuse and if i put the jumpercables on, it still blows.
At this point i've disconnected the bike wiring to the battery and am trying to let the trickle charger charge the battery that way.
I haven't dug out my voltmeter yet. Does anyone have any ideas that would explain why my fuse blows immediately. I'm pretty sure i'm not doing anything obvious like shorting the jumper cables to the frame, but passed that i can't figure anything out.
