The MAIN fuse is under a cover attached to the starter solenoid.I replaced it with a waterproof fuse holder and a auto type fuse.The rest of the fuses are under the front lid of the false tank,under the tool tray.If it's a faring model with the radio and such,there are fuses behind the left turn-signal.

The main fuses are very prone to cracking and failing (It's very difficult to see they have cracked!) hence it's a common mod to fit a different fuse in parallel to the original on leads to isolate some of the vibration (as virgilmobil has done).
