V4 Blowing Fuses

Took my V4 in to have the 6 recalls done, got the bike back and now it continues to blow a fuse that causes the dash to light up like a Christmas tree. Everything errors out and will no longer function. Dealership told me the NRC tail tidy is causing it however, before I brought the bike to them it was working and running just fine. Any idea what is causing this.

Considering they have been on the bike from day one and Iv had the bike 7 months, donít see how that it would be the rear twilights.

Well obviously if everything worked before the dealer put his
hands on it, then they did something wrong !
Surely they can’t be that dumb not to realize it .
Or maybe they are......

If a fuse is blowing, a circuit is being overloaded or shorted out. What exactly did they tamper with ? Possibly they cut into a wire that earths and shorts out ?
Look for pinched wired . Or exposed wires.

Not sure what they did, there were 6 recalls on the bike and they fixed those. I know one dealt with the oil cooler and the other with the front exhaust header.

I wouldn’t be using that dealer ever again, if it worked before going in then it should work going out.

that kit doesn't even look like it has anything to plug and unplug except the license plate light and its a plug and play this doesn't make sense.

did you replace the turn signals or the tail light ? not that those would necessarily even be able to blow a fuse. but what are they going on about

If you've seen the nest of wires that lurk under the battery cover and top fairings then I'm inclined to say they've nipped a wire.

A plug and play kit wouldn't do that.

Update, come to find out when Ducati did the recalls they pinched the fan wires and was causing the fuse to blow.

I was only adding a bit of carbon bling and I can tell you the bike is a PITA to work on!
