I changed fuses in the box under the false tank, but I think I blew the main fuse trying to start it up. The headlight worked briefly, but not the rear lights. I need to replace the main fuse, but the local shop is saying $97.00 for a new one, plus the plastic wire harness is broken/melted. I'm assuming that the main fuse and the starter relay are the same thing. I've read that I can replace the entire unit with a 30amp marine version blade type fuse for much less money. Does anyone have any suggestions, step-by-step, etc.? I can't get an inspection until I get these lights working. I can send pics if needed.

But if you replace it and it blows again, you've got a problem - there's a reason why it's blowing, and you need to find out what that reason is before you end up melting wire, or worse, lighting the bike on fire.
