Thanks Roach Carver - never seen a fuse box look like that, and the Clymer manual showed a normal fuse panel like a car would have.

Well, I checked and there are only two fuses. Both seemed fine, which is disappointing because the bike won't start anymore.

I had it hooked up to my car battery to get her started and the positive lead slipped while I wasn't looking and grounded out on the frame. Looking for suggestions as to what to check next. The red light on the speedo will come on, and so will the lights and the horn will operate, but the 2nd light that comes on to let you know the bike is ready to start hasn't come on, and when I push the electric starter I get absolutely nothing.

Any help is greatly appreciated!
