Installed new battery... backwards! Yep, I'm an idiot! It started smoking from inside the sproket cover!?? Am I missing something? Is there any wiring in there? Not that I'm aware of. Maybe the stater motor cooking off? What other electronics do I need to check?

Hook up the battery properly and do some testing. I'm sure you'll find out right away anything that got toasted. Wiring is easy to replace. Sensors and Control Units, not so much. You may find you have a nice looking anchor for a new boat but without further testing it's impossible to say what the damage is.

Do what you can yourself as far as seeing what still works properly but any in-depth troubleshooting will take a pro.
