Hi there, I am currently a new 1982 GL500 owner. As I try to get everything in order and just fueled up the tank hooked up the battery and was ready for a test run, the worst (for me anyways) an instant electrical problem occurred. From my key in the start to the manual choke on the side it arced
and now the whole system appears to be dead, a quick look at all the fuses and replacing a few that looked dead, the system will still not start up. any ideas as to what this may be?

After some research, the symptoms point to the main fuse, something I will check into tomorrow. As for the arc... this bike has been sitting out side for a good 10 years before i got a hold of it, and the guy before me had been using an old Ford key that only kinda fits the ignition, so I'm fairly sure that needs to be replaced. I'll check back in tomorrow morning after checking the main fuse.

Thanks for your help :)
