About 6 inches forward of the battery, a red wire (one of 4 wires in a harness) is burnt and throwing smoke/spark. I noticed a patch of soot under my seat during regular checking/cleaning which lead me to the red wire where the insulation has been burt through and wire was exposed. I wrapped the spot with electrical tape. I'm a noob and not sure what this wire is for or how to resolve the issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The system is stock for what I can observe.

You are going to need to find out whats its rubbing on and try to either relocate the wire or tie it more securely. Before you do that though, you are going to need to cut and splice in a new wire or at least put in a butt connector (if the insulation on the existing wire is gone and the wire itself is rubbing).
