Sounds like a direct short to ground at some point. A wire rubbed and touching the frame. Or ground and power wire shorted together......
Hard to find as meter will show continuity even through the short.....start at the tail light bulb sockets and go from there.
The 1800 is my bike. The very best motorcycle ever made. I was enthralled with my first test ride on this machine. It is a great bike. A crotch rocket with storage bags.............As for oil I use the slick kind, and I like round tires, but as of late I have found square ones work best on the rear. Pirelli Eufori 195/55/16 @ 32 PSI
