R100GS ELECTRICAL PROBLEM, drained battery
got a problem with my 1991 GS. When I turn on the ignition the battery drains in a few seconds. I know the battery is good and it recovers when the ignition is turned off. obviously difficult to test as I don't want to damage the battery by repeatedly draining it. I am guessing I have a short to earth somewhere but where?. The indicator relay looks a bit suspect with a slightly melted plastic case and if i unplug it there is no drain but nothing works. I cant see how a flasher relay could be the problem so I suspect it could be a red herring. I am a bit stumped, grateful for any advice or hints on where to look for the problem.
