    Put a voltmeter on the battery when you rev it over 1000 rpm and see if the voltage drops instead of increasing.

    My suggestion was not that the reversed polarity would disable the connection between the ignition and the battery. If the polarity of the diode board output were reversed then it would be cancel...

    I had these on one of my bikes years ago. I'm not sure how well they worked but I do recall that one day I came out to find one of them had blown the top off and I had lost all of the pressure in...

    You don't need a buzzer made for a bike. Goto your local electronics store and get a piezo buzzer with a built in driver. Get the loudest one you can get. Hook the hot wire to both turn signals...

    The radio is readily available on eBay. You can use one from a K100LT, K1100LT, and R1100RT. They are all swappable. Make sure you get the security code with it or you'll have another boat anchor.
