So you know how you hear people say how they pinched a wire putting the headlight shell back together. So you know how you think they're kinda dumb for not paying attention. So I'm kinda dumb. Made it 2 blocks and the bike cut out. I look down to see the insulation melt off the kill switch wire and smoke coming out of the headlamp. That's not good. Pushed it back home (yes, up hill).
I got lucky - only the kill switch wiring got fried. And my headlight bucket smells smokey.
