Ok, back to post #20. You should be able to figure that out.
The white wire from the regulator runs back to the starter solenoid where the 20A fuze is, then that red cable from it goes to the battery. And then your ground cable from the battery to the engine block and a smaller black/yellow wire to the frame.
Alright then. Get some more fuzes and get them all back into place. Then test the brown buss the same way with key on. While doing that, without starting the bike, try all the ectricals on the bike. Head, tail, brake lights, horn, turn signals, dash.
A bus is an electrical highway. Provides voltage to numerous points. The white bus provides a constant 12v from the battery to the ignition switch and 14v from the regulator to the battery and ignition switch. The ignition switch then powers the brown bus, which supplies electrical voltage to the rest of the bike. The ground bus is the black/yellow wire the grounds everything back to the frame -then the battery neg- post. White bus, brown bus, ground bus. Everything else on the bike feeds off these.
