Question about 2000 Harley Davidson XL 1200 C Sportster Custom
I am going to assume a couple of things. First, the cables were connected to the new battery and when you slid it in place the positive side hit the frame and arced. Second, you now have no power anywhere.
If this is correct then there would not have been a current flow through any circuit. No fuses or breakers would have tripped. The current flow would have been limited to battery positive, through the frame, up the negative cable to battery negative. With no resistance this path would have carried hundreds of amps and overwelmed the weakest connection. Remove and inspect both battery post connections, the positive cable at the starter solenoid, and the negative connection on the engine. Start and end with battery negative, so you don't do it again.

Hi ....... Fuses and circuit breakers are normally under the left sidepanel. If circuit breakers are fitted you'll see a 'bank' of three, mounted side by side, 30 amp & two 15's. They reset when you switch ignition off & back on. Your bike is on/during the change over period so I can't def'ly say what you'll have fitted.
Let us know how you get on and if needed I'll try and help further.
