1989 KLR 650 Smoke coming from front end

I accidentally left my keys in the ignition and drained the battery. I push started it and the bike won’t hold charge and electric start won’t work. I replaced the battery, that didn’t work. I pushed started it to get home and smoke started pouring out from the front end, near the front of my gas tank. And when my battery is hooked up, without the keys even in it, the green light on my dash that says I’m in neutral lights up.(I disconnected battery). I’m thinking I blew a fuse or something. No smoke coming from engine. What could this be?

Sounds like a shorted wire. Pull plastic, and look for burned wires.
