    Yeah i cant wait until this bike is done once I'm running on all 4 I will only have one issue and it's that shor circuit

    I doubt you have a short circuit. You have a loose and corroded ground connection inside, or at your fuse box.
    Possibly the large ground wire that connects to the top of the tranny (either end).

    Okay will be looking at wiring diagram to check all grounds. I know it relates to the charging system because the bike acts fine when I have it disconnected. I changed the secondary battery ground and am gonna have the regulator ground on the negative battery terminal

    Gonna see if theres any more to check. Think I'll be fine.

    Adding an additional ground doesn't change anything. The fault is still wired into the system. What you're doing is like having the light in your living room flickering and then turning off the light in the bedroom expecting that to fix the problem. lol

    No I didnt add an additional ground my negative battery ground has two for some reason. Unless you're talking about the regulator which I'm not sure where else I should put it.

    I'm sure it's odd my negative battery connection has 2 grounds but it does lol

    That just means either of them can be faulty. It only take one faulty to have the problem.

    It means there's no success to any outcome. Seeing as it wasn't quoting anything it's probably directed towards me, no big deal.
