All voltage ends at the frame, ultimately the battery ground terminal, I'm betting that doesn't fix it, maybe defers it a little while. Did you ever check that ground gang connector?
Yes I did open up both right and left ground clusters from inside the wire harnis, I took the caps off and pulled out the jumper pins for a good hard inspection that are great looking no melting no sign of hot spots at all, I plan to put some dielectric grease on the jumpers before I re-tape them into the harnises.
I agree with you and redwing52 that the problem may not be fixed. what I do know is the toggle switch is for fog lights and is installed on the left side where (i think a CB would go). This power lead was pinched hard between air box and frame, some how, (I can put up the pics i took if you want) I had key on, in first gear, engine not running (radio was in mute as described above that's one of the problems i had) as soon as I pulled the wire out from between the frame and the air box my radio came off mute, when I ran the test from green to ground and then green/whit to ground everywhere it had ground.
With my automotive knowledge and with 15 years d/c electrical repair experience, I had already planed to remove the air box and do more inspecting before I reassemble the bike, but as I said "it seems
like its fixed"
Dave, redwing52, DBohrer, (and others I failed to name) have so much more knowledge about these machines then I do and I totally respect your advice, and with what you just told me I'll be looking very hard for a problem ground wire near and around where this power lead was pinched!
