K6 1000 lights ALL cut out??!?! Help!

I seem to have a problem. :BangHead:

Anyway, I'm out riding in the westheimer area 2 nights ago, about 20 minutes from my crib (Clear Lake). A friend of mine hits my blinker just messing around I guess. Problem is, ALL of my lights just CUT out (in the middle of the night ). Instrument panel stopped working... EVERYTHING!!

In fact the only lights that do work are high beam, low beam, and the high beam indication light on the instrument panel...

Things that cut out...
-Horn
-Blinkers
-Rear Light
-Entire instument panel except high beams
-License plate light

There could be more, but I havent noticed it yet.

As far as I know there is no one fuse that controls ALL of these. I've checked all of the fuses just under the plastic on the left hand side of the bike, and under the seat. I have no idea what relays to check, and how to check them, or even if that is the problem.

Yes I probably will go see patrick as soon as I can if I cannot get this resolved, but it's going to be rather hard to get the bike an hour north of where I am, being that I drive a car.

Thanks for your time guys.

fuse is blown. on my 1000rr the brake light, signals, and horn are wired to the same fuse.

i had aftermarket LED signals, with those polarity thingys to slow down the signals. my polarity regulator thingy was shorted which caused it to keep blowing fuses.

my advise would be check your fuses.

My bad, the blinker switch was pushed to the right. I dont know this caused anything because I didnt see the lights instantly go out, but they could have. Because not even a second later I looked at the instrument panel, noticed it was all black, but the bike was running, and soon thereafter noticed nothing else worked.

thanks again!

I checked them, and I'll check them again, but what ONE fuse controls so much?

Anyway, I have a presentatin to give in mechanical design, I'll get back to the forum in a bit.

I agree it is probably just a fuse, but something caused the fuse to blow so that may not be the end of your search for the problem.

With technical diag terms and descriptions like that, you can work on my bike anytime I have an issue with my 'polarity thingy'

I am a tech at stubbs, there is one fuse that runs all of them its the signal fuse. I have had a k6 1000 do it to me before, his fender eliminator blew the fuse. The fuse box should be up front on the right side, do not quote be on the location though, need to look at a manual tom morning at work.
