i have a question i got a 05 RC the past week awesome bike but the battery died on me while getting gas. when i went to replace it in a hurry and it being 110 out pouring sweat i fkd up and hooked the battery up backward. as soon as i hit the ground wire to the battery after hooking up power i realized it was wrong. put it in right and now nothing happens when i key it on. im a diesel tech and kno i blew a fuse or possibly something worse, fuses are good would it be something easy ? i found in the manual the electric start diode inspection, my meter is at work so i was going to check it tomorrow. any info would be appreciated or a point in the right right direction. jus thought id ask in here to see if anybody else may have done that or seen that before. some good info here and nice bikes
