    I realize this is an old thread but someone else may run into the same problem.

    When this happens, it usually indicates that the ground wire that attaches to the bar risers is deffective/missing and the ground for the controls/lights etc are finding their way back to the battery through the cable. It happens with the throttle cables also.
