    Hello everyone Im an avid rider but NOT a mechanic ,altho I do like to try.. When i got my bike used 1200 custom it had LED lights around frame that were pretty bad ass with remote all was well then they went out and took my brake light signal horn and odemetor with it . I checked all the fuses replaced a few and got nothing . I cant see where the light wire starts and stop because he has it wired behind the oil tank and across top of motor that i as a woman zip tied knowing it would burn thru the wires .
    Any advice and are there anymore fuses that I need to check anywhere? Still learning but would love the help
    Thanks
    Harlee

    Sure sounds like a fuse.I would disconnect the leds from the bike and check the fuses for 1 that blew since you replaced it and turned the ign.switch back on. Let us know how it comes out.

    Sometimes the LED light strips have fuses in their own line, like the Christmas tree lights. You may have to cut the zips loose to see, but replacing them is easy enough.

    Pulling a tank loose enough to look is not too complicated, but if you had someone help it would go easier. And if you don't have a service manual, get one.

    Good luck!
