Short in your wiring harness which will be a BITCH to find

I would guess the same thing, a short somewhere most likely... and will also be a bitch to find I'm sure.

Be sure to remove all fairings, tank, seat, etc. and look for pinched wires or wear spots. Some bikes have issues with wear spots on how the wiring loom was routed from the factory.

Also, if you've removed any parts for maintenance, look around there. Some wiring harnesses are meant to be routed in only one place and might get pinched if you do some modifications to the bike.
