Electrical boo boo...HELP

Ok- I really am not as dumb as this sounds but. I drained the battery on my '95 YZF 600 with my cooling fan. So I went to jump it with the car. I cross poled the cables and poof (it was 1am and dark). None of the fuses in the box (20, 15, 10, 7.5, 7.5) are shot and the battery is fine but I have no juice to anything. No "dash", blinkers, headlight, horn, etc. Is their a fusable link? or some other larger inline fuse somewhere??? Help???

Time to start tracing wires...

There's probably a fusible link between the battery and starter, but it's possible you fried you're voltage regulator/rectifier.

It may also have a MAIN fuse that is 100-150 Amp. Hope that you have one and it popped before you destroyed the regulator, wiring, magneto windings, etc.

did you have the car running while you jumped it? more than likely you fried your regulator, can't handle the amperage. not too fimiliar with that model, might be a main fuse somewhere. do you have a voltage meter? check to see if you're getting voltage to ignition switch. good luck.

1. Take the keys out of both vehicles (the car should be off). The car should not be touching the motorcycle.
2. Hook the RED (it's usually but not always red) POSITIVE jumper cable up to the positive (+) terminal of the car battery.
3. Hook the other end of the RED cable up to the POSITIVE (+) terminal on your bike. MAKE SURE THAT NO PART OF THE POSITIVE JUMPER CABLE CONTACTS ANY METAL ON YOUR BIKE!!!!! CAN YOU HEAR ME YELLING AT YOU?!? YOU MAY FRY YOUR ELECTRICAL SYSTEM IF YOU EVEN TOUCH THE METAL. Ok, I'm done yelling. . . sorry.
4. Next, hook one end of the BLACK (again, it's usually black) cable to the negative ( - ) side of the car battery.
5. Next, hook the last clamp on the other side of the negative wire to a good metal part (not chrome though) of your bike. I usually hook it up to the rear axle nut. If you see a little spark, this is ok.
6. Check all of your connections, turn the bike on, and fire it up!!!


I don't know ish but how to put gas in and go but there are a lot of trouble shooting shii on the net why didn't I post the link ????

I actually did this same thing on the same type bike when I was putting mine back together. There is a pain in the rear fuse block under the seat that has like a 30amp fuse or so that was blown on mine. I had same problems no start, no signals, power anything.

I guess in short go through ALL the fuse blocks under the seat make sure you didn't miss one.

I am back and checking. The bike is in St.Paul at my dolly's house so I haven't had a chance to get over there. I took the fairings and tank off last night and didn't see jack. Trailerin it home tonight. My '99 Superhawk was feeling neglected anyway! Thanks all for the help

Usually that fuse isn't too far from the battery...

When you replaced that fuse, did that fix your problem? Hopefully the fuse protected the delicate electronics in your bike like it was designed to do. You have to watch out w/ those jumper cables.
