Starting and Cut off
2004 Volusia/Intruder VL 800.
I have been having problems starting. First started having week cold starts; then, smoke started coming from an unknown location. Thought it was a loose connection or a short from a lighter/phone charging installation. Then on a week start/cold start a few days ago, Smoke started coming out of the Starter compartment. Then the last draw was that after starting, I would shift to first and engine will cut off.
I decided to check more thorough and found that the wiring harness from the Side stand switch to the Starter burned to crisp.
Any input what could have been the cause and how to proceed?
Could it be a loose connection or a short in the starter, or a short in the side stand switch/ etc...
Thanks in advance.
