You have a short somewhere. I'd start looking at your hid's because that's probably where the problem is.

By simply grounding your system to the negative, shouldnt drain your battery. Check your entire HID set up and make sure the wires are all good.. If you still cant figure it out then take the HIDs out and try the stock headlight again to see if the problem still persist

you can eather have a short somewhere so chek you wiering to you HID and alarm or it could be that you have a problem somwhere in you charging system check you battery voltage with the bike off which should be 12.4-12.8V then check it with your bike running the if your voltage comes out less that 13.6-12.0 V while running it at 3000-4000 RPMs you got a problem with the charging systemull


Caerfull not to blow a fues on the bike or you multimeter.
