    hi had the same problem on my 05 1200custom,it turned out to be the neg lead from the battery to the earth stud,the previous owner had wired something on there.due to the rain ect it corroded a bit of wire which finally dropped out and left the lead loose,stripped down cleaned it all up and no probs since
