I was just breezing the site this morning when I came upon a thread that had a burned positive battery terminal in a picture then I remembered that I received a recall notice about a year ago for the positive battery cable. I guess the problem was actually the routing and the fact that it could get smashed by the seat and short out. The pictures were proof positive, although I never had a problem. It was fixed (through the recall in January of 2015. Usually sites do have a recall thread or section so new riders will know what to check for to avoid manufacturing issues.
