Sounds like you have short in the wiring harness. Your gonna have to inspect the harness and repair the damage. From what I read the 08 is prone to this. This might help 08 wire harness mod

Check the wiring harness on the right side of the frame under the gas tank near the steering head. There have been several reports of damaged wires in this area.
