YEP - I meant I WOULD be checking the rest of the wiring to be sure nothing is shorting together or to ground.

Only just spotted this part of the post.

Yes, i realise the siren has its own battery and that it is a PP3 rechargeable...my thought initially was the charging circuit might have failed causing high current drain, that only occurs a while after the bike has started and the charging circuit kicks in, as I was under the impression that the charging circuit did not start until the main battery reached a certain voltage. but higher than the 12.5 you say .

David, does the siren still chirp ? Did you ever disconnect it ?



David..maybe post the picture of your original single phase burnt out stator too
