    Uh oh- I done bad

    So I just finished reinstalling the starter on my CB175, and went to make sure it was working by being impatient and touching the power cable to the hot terminal of the battery. Spark, a little pop.

    Now nothing seems to work (previously everything was working: horn, and all the lights worked, even nuetral and turn signal indicators)

    I checked the 1 little fuse that I can see, and its fine. Battery reads 12V too.

    So what did I cook?

    It's like a Machiavellian 4-volume trilogy based on Hamlet senza misura with an ego-maniacal downs syndrome kid reading from a Rube Goldeberg-esque kindle.

    It looks fine- and its reading 0.0 ohms, so I know its still connected

    Battery in backwards?
    I dabble in rocket science, when I\'m not picking my nose
    The other night I gave my girlfriend an orgasm, but, she spat it back at me

    Get out your multimeter and start tracing where you have continuity and where you don't.
