30 amp main fuse

Postby marve319 » Sun Apr 28, 2013 2:15 pm



Guys, I have a slight problem. I blew the 30 amp main fuse and was lucky that there was a spare one in the case. However; that one is real old looking, probably when the bike was new. Here is my question, actually two of them. One, can I change that metal fuse out to a fusible link without causing any problems? Two do you know where I could purchase a new fuse? None of the parts stores around here have them anymore. Help, getting ready to do a trip through the Blue Ridge Mountains with my son and I don't want to break down if that fuse blows. It should not because it was our fault when we were hooking up some new led lights something was crossed and blew the fuse. Its just that it is old looking and I don't know if it will hold up.

Replace it with a 30 amp fuse holder and fuse.

Yes thank you for the quick reply. I figured it out already and have put a in -line fuse in it and everything is just honky dory. Thanks again for your quick response.
