Looking at the gap and hearing your symptoms.
Believe you have a wire or two pinched in the grip harness area.

Curious why the lithium bath too. Over kill IMO.

Thanks guys. After a minute i had lights, starter, and ultimately fired back to life. Let it idle a minute and revved it, all seems well. And the grease makes the throttle snap quick. Ill report back tomorrow after my commute to work!

If you did not at least wipe off the excess you are asking for trouble in things "gunking" up at some point in time.
Do`t kill your bike with kindness.

But that`s just me.....

The MoCo has been building bikes for a very long time. They have a reason for printing what is in the Shop Manual and why it is what HD trained Mechanics go by as well.

Did you still lube the cables internally?
How about the clutch cable?

That's the key right there.

Modern Harleys have Teflon cables.

I haven't lubed my throttle or clutch since I bought my present bike.

They just look like steel cables youd buy at a hardware store.

Haha i guess all is not well. Remember last night i got the bike running after that weird elecrical pop? This cool morning i went out, turned ignition on, i had headlights and dash, pulled enricher and hit the starter, i hear a click (starter solenoid?) And no crank, immediately lights out. No dash, no headlamp, nothing. Turned key off. Turned key back on, still no lights.
Last night i hooked the bike to my trickle maintainet, and within 30 seconds it indicated FULL BATTERY. I know battery is goid. In fact, everything is good, something just got boogered up yesterday and i need help. It cant be a fuse, because it wouldnt stop working and then start working and stop again. What should i be looking at? Can lithium grease short out electrical connectors? I thought it was insulative but i could be wrong. I really need this bike running so i can clean her up today
