Hi my name is Miles i had my main fuse melted on me, a 1984 1200GL Aspencade and was wondering if some one could send me a pic of the mainfuse and harness, or a wire diagram so i can rewire a new fuse into it. the top connector harness is toast and i have to connect with spade conectors, thanks

With a little bit of searching at a good auto body supply store, or at a quality marine supplies shop , you can find a waterproof, 12 ga blade fuse holder, and either 30 or 40 amp fuses : ... edIndex=37

I added circular crimp / solder connectors to each end of the wires , and just wired it into the two small screws that are there : ... edIndex=38

Be sure to pack extra fuses, and before you do ANYthing ... like turn it on ..... find out exactly why the fuse blew ...
( Probably a short to ground, somewhere, in the starter circuit )

I've had two old wings thus far. On both I've had them simply deteriorate and fall apart along with the plastic housing they were in. I tried several other fuse holders and they also eventually failed due to the poor connection quality and the heat that generated. Wingadmin suggested a large fuse holder from Radio Shack. Seems to be built better with heavier connectors and better quality plastic than the previous replacements. So far so good and that's after about 10k miles.
