Everything dead after removing bikini fairing?
 
Hey folks,

Have a 2011 Monster 796 that I just replaced the bikini fairing on for the oem cluster cover.

Now upon key turn, no electronics/lights spin up anywhere, bike won't start etc...

Perhaps I blew a fuse somehow? Tripped the immobilizer?

Have been riding all day and battery is brand new.

Any ideas?

Quick update:

Both my "Key On" and "Instrument Panel" fuses were both blown. Going to replace them and cross my fingers that it doesn't happen again.

Not sure how changing out the instrument cluster cover would do that though.

check the wires and connections before putting in the new fuses.

This ^, and check very carefully. Something touched (or is touching) something else that is not supposed to touch.

I changed my indicators recently, and noticed there's a lot of wire rubbing that was going on behind the headlight on the frame head, enough to wear down the paint. They wont win a prize for their electrical engineering.

Installed some new fuses and now all the electronics start up, and stay on. Only problem is, they do so without the key in the ignition. I can even start the bike without the key.

The short out was caused by the screw in the instrument cover being too long(25mm). If you screw it in too much, poof, the fuse will go.

:mad:

wow I have never heard of that happening...I have gone back and forth on the bikini fairing or not and changed a lot with no issues so that is odd. So, like said in previous member's posts, triple check your wiring harness that goes into the instrument cluster.

Good that its running again but it should require a key to start! :eek:

If I remember correctly the screws for the fairing and cover are different lengths. If you used the same screws from the fairing, they may be too long and are causing the issues.

These are the correct screws for the gauge cover.

Sorry to bring this thread back from the dead, but a QQ for everyone.

First off, thanks TonyDiv for the screw measurements. 15mm sounds about right.

That being said, I was able to source another 796 abs cluster. Does anyone know if it will be plug and play or will there be programming involved?
