electrical problem 96 honda goldwing gl1500

Hi all, i am having trouble with a short somewhere. When the ignition is off there is still a pull on the battery causing it to go dead. Was wondering if anyone else has had this problem and knows how to fix it. I have already replaced the battery, alternator and the starter last year. Worked fine last year when I put it away for the winter. Went down to start it up last week and it started up just fine, then went down to start it up to bring it home and the battery was dead. Any help would be appreciated...weather is getting nice and would like to get back on the road soon!!!!

Start by pulling all of the fuses, then replacing them one by one to see which one causes the current draw. You'll then have a place to start in identifying which system is causing the draw.
