Could be a badly insulated feed (+) wire shorting to ground, a bad harness plug, a bad wire tapping job....obviously it's affecting more than the Baja Designs circuitry - also taking out your electric start.

Have you checked THAT blinker - if it melted the casing, it may well have melted the wires together inside, then - if you turn it on - bam - you got a short.
Well, you've got it narrowed down to the Baja kit being the problem, likely, you've tied into the starter circuit for your feed - thus the starter circuit fuse blew in your earlier post.
What you can do now is buy a bunch of proper fuses, remove all light feed wires except what you need for one light - the way to do that is to go to where all wires to the lights come off the control unit, should have a harness plug there - most harness connectors have a little spring clip on the metal portion that hold them tight into the connector, if you push that clip you can pull the metal connector right out of the harness plug, so unclip all except one light and the ground of course, ride - if it blows, it's that light, if it doesn't, add in the next light and so on until it blows, at which point you remove the last light and ride again just to verify. Oh yeah - make sure you draw yourself a nice little diagram so you are sure to put everything back where it came from in the connector.
At that point, you have one lamp circuit to inspect for a problem.

I don't want to sound like a prick but if you keep this up you'll need alot more then just some help.
okay so i put a new fuse in it, a 30 this time because thats all that was around. Checked all my connections and found a rear blinker was rubbing the sub frame. i hought sweet problem fixed. Took it out for a spin and 5 min down the road nothing worked - but the bike was still going. Everything baja kit related doesnt work once fuse is blown. This kinda sucks because i would be out ridn right now. So just keep tracing wires? if a blinker was say wired backwards would that cause it? + to - and - to + this is pissing me off.... also the way the rear blinkers mount is kinda dumb. my exhaust fumes hit the blinker and it totally melted the blinker all thats left is a bulb and wires honestly, not worth $460 maybe $300...
I'm not really sure if you are trying to set your bike on fire or what . but putting a 30 amp fuse in where a 10 or 15 amp is a great way it start a fire or aleast burn up all the wiring and the stator. I think you should just take the bike to someone who knows how to work with wiring ,before you trash the whole electrical system .
If it were my bike I would unhook all the extras and test it . then hook them back on 1 by 1 with the right size fuse until I found the short.

Don't put a 30 Amp fuse where a 10 Amp fuse is supposed to go unless you want melted wires or a fire.

I took it riding on the trails today and it was deff fun. It really needs an exhaust to open it up along with some adjustments and some tlc but that will all come in time. I dont even have my license yett only a permit so its good that my lights dont work yett

so i took it for a spin and its not running so well. It seems to be mis-firing. It did this before when i rode it and i knew it had the orginal plug in it so i changed that out and it still does it. Clean air filter and oil. The gas was 1/2 tank of who knows what when i bought it so i filled it with 93 and its down to 3/4 tank. Figure just run that gas tru and see if it clears up? think the carb needs cleaning? at WOT it goes good, and bogging it it seems fine but at mid throttle it spits and sputters... ideas? thanks guys

as far as your bike running bad . Did it ever run right for you since you've had it? If not there is a good chance that it's jetted wrong. or your accel pump is not working or both.

As for the bike it did run good when i rode it at the guys house. It was a bit warmer and he was at much higher elevation. Last night it seemed to be doing it pretty bad and it sure was cold out. He never said anything about the bike being jetted tho. it has the stock pipe.
