30 amp Main Fuse Holder

Postby Dakotaman » Sun Dec 16, 2012 12:20 pm



I wanted to check things out, but don't want to break anything because of age. I don't think there would be a spare 30 amp spare still in there, and you probably can't get that type anymore. I would like to know how you take that fuse holder apart to check it out. And I know that I could replace it with a 30 amp spade type fuse holder, so I would have easier access to it. Thanks in advance!!

You can actually get those fuse types still, because they are still used in some modern bikes, believe it or not. You shouldn't break anything just opening it up to access the fuse - but yes, you're probably better off replacing it with a blade fuse holder and blad fuse.

Thanks for the response. What I really want to know is how to open the fuse container by the battery. I don't want to break the latch part of it.

I did get the cover off and the dogbone fuse that is in there looks okay. And there is still a spare in there too. If I have to replace the fuse, while out riding, do you have to remove the negative cable? I do plan on replacing the dogbone with the 30amp type, when I get the chance. I do appreciate this site, and how helpful people are!!!

I have a question about the glass fuses, that are in the fuse box in the false tank. Where could I buy individual fused, instead of the multipacks. I've looked at Walmart, Canadian Tire. Would Napa sell some individually? Suggestions are appreciated.

I can't say I've ever seen them sold individually. But they cost next to nothing!
