you get lights or anything come on the bike(other than leds)? i am assuming you turn you led lights off with a switch and not leave them on all the time

well, I would start at the battery. check your connections and check the main fuse to make sure you didn't blow it.

maybe... but keep it simple before you run to that route. did you recheck you battery connection for the motorcycle? who cares about leds it the bike doesn't run. it fact, take that off and get back to square one and get the bike running. plus, you've never answered my first question. does anything come on the bike at all? headlights?

i think you you have wired your leds directly to the battery with no switch. you should wire it to something that turns on when your key turns on, or maybe even adding its on switch.
