not new rider - just new username NY state

Hi- I have an ltd 85- I have had it for four years now and about 25000 miles. I have rebuilt and restored it. It has an external denso alternator on it.
I have had 3 goldwings - have a 75 also - I m a BMW - old iron rider with a little less then 500 k on.

I need some assistance please. Thanks.

Unfortunately the bike and I were run over at a stoplight in sept 2015. It was totaled and so was I - a thirty mile an hour hit from the left side.

The bike was pushed twelve feet with the wheels of a Durango on its alternator and lower fairing and right wheel on the rear tire - I m still looking for left side cover and lower as well as plastic over fake gas tank area.

So I rode it since January 700 miles working the bugs out - I still Have a tps issue - anyone have a good tps unit to sell me - at this point I m not doing the threads alternative to this - maybe later I dont have time right now - I ll get to it.
About a month ago I decided to finalize all repair on the ass end
I took all off.

Installed new shocks and more - before this dismantling I had running lights front and rear.

I accidentally ground the alternator and blew the inline marine fuse to pos side of battery It confused me for a while but I got it.

I replaced the alternator. All good in charging department now.

I was missing the license plate light I started through the back end loom thinking i did not connect or I damaged some wire etc - nothing.

Then i i lost all the running lights front and rear on a trip through Vermont over the weekend - I have brake lights and turn signal lights - I have not blown any fuses

The light on dash is always on

I found and removed tail light sensing unit by the side of the battery
Dash light went out. I have not gotten any further - I have read a lot of posts

I need some help- any and all assistance is kindly appreciated

Your experience parallels my own so close, it made me hurt just thinking about it.

I got T-boned in January 2008 by an 18 wheeler.... pictures all over the internet if you wish to see them.

Please copy and put this post up on the Technical Forum so that the tech gurus there can help you resolve your problems.

Hello and Welcome the folks over in the Tech area can likley offer some thoughts. There are I believe two fellows offering some 1200 parts in the for sale section . LTD/SEi will be harder to find fuel injection specific parts. . Glad to hear your doing well and getting back to riding .

NASR 10 Good times!
