Bike won't start

Trying to leave my apt on tuesday and the bike died while i was leaving but came alive immediately after. I thought to myself that it was pretty odd, and then it died again and won't start. When i usually turn on the bike, it displays the temperature, now when i turn the key on, it displays CHEC and flashes the oil light. When i try and press the starter, nothing happens. I checked the on/off switch and cleaned it, i checked my kickstand wire, still ok, it has plenty of oil. There is a fuse that is blown and when i replaced it, it just blew again. I don't have a repair book, so if somebody could post the fuse diagram, it would be much appreciated and any other advice as well.

Sounds like a short in your stater circuit. Which fuse are you blowing?
A lot of the old SRADS have problems with the wiring harness plugs on the left and right side of the bike, directly underneath the cowling. Look for either burnt wires / melted plugs.

Yeah, I have had problems with the plugs frying. I looked pretty well but was unable to spot anything unusual in the wiring.
