    Hey guys need ur help.I was tighten up my positive cable on battery of my 1200s sportster(97) model and accidently touched the frame w/my wrench! Spark city! Turn the key and nutten happens! Must have shorted out something but what?? No lights,no start,no nutten! What have I done to my electrical system? Circut breakers “look” ok but whats the problem?? HELP!

    Why not check and clean the positive terminal while the negative terminal is disconnected? Would be less chance for sparks,
