VF1000R Where there's smoke

Has anyone struck this before and found the cause…I replaced the spark plugs, fitted everything back together and started the bike. Then I saw smoke only to find the wiring connector was melting. Have I done something wrong?

Which connector was smoking? Sounds like something shorting to earth so you may have trapped a wire when assembling.


Not unusual for the connection to the alternator to melt(corrosion causing high resistance).
Plenty of connector blocks available on fleabay

Cheers, All sorted now
