Thumbs down 04 Brutale fried electrical something

So i just got stranded in a Burger king parking lot on my 2004 Brutale 750. I started my bike up, made it about 10 feet and all of a suddden it died, all my gauges went out and white smoke started billowing out from under my tank. I ripped the seat off and got the battery disconnected before it went up in flames . Does anyone have any idea what happened and what i am going to have to replace?

If it was an electrical fire, at worst the wire harness will have to be replaced. More information and some detailed pictures would help diagnose what might need replacing.

Welcome aboard, by the way.

There are several "oracles" on this forum and CAG is one of them.

Might also be worth giving us a 'smell' perspective ;-)

Thanks for the hospitality! I have been studying for finals so i hadn't had a chance to get the bike pulled apart until today. The problem is the fuse box which by reading other posts is called the SPU? It has a hole melted in the back and it left a nice scorch mark on the side of my gas tank. Luckily all of the wiring harnesses seem to have been below the meltdown and unaffected. Here are some Pics, is this the SPU and where is the best place to get a new one?

unfortunately welcome to the infamous SPU club - yep its fried.

i used vesuvio who were great, the order part number is on the back of the fuse cover - use their OEM parts side to enter the code

Cheers
