DRZ 400 QUIT RUNNIG

I decide to buzz around on some bayou banks around my house Saturday morning. My DRZ400 dies. I switch to reserve thinking I am out of gas. No dice. Then I notice no instruments, lights, horn etc. Call my wife and have her pick me up.

So I take my bike all apart trying to find the cause of blowing the main fuse.
By the way this is the only fuse on a DRZ400SM.
I am disconnecting all kinds of things and scratching my head.
I get my son over and he disconnects even more items and we print out a color wiring diagram. HE says we disconnect everything and will start hooking up items one at a time until it blows the fuse again. As he is disconnecting the rear brake light switch he spots those wires melted to the exhaust pipe. Wala. That is it. He truly is a Genius. It was routed up the front of the engine and touched the exhaust pipe. I doubt this is the factory routing as someone before me did a Big Bore Kit and probably changed the routing.

Similar thing happened to me but it was the brake light wire rubbing on the subframe bolt, I couldn't blame the PO and I was stranded in Mexico 500 miles away from my wife.

Finally unhooked everything and rode back with no lights.
