Mystery Fuses - 86 122I

Post by jpmurphy » Fri Sep 27, 2013 1:48 pm



I discovered 2 fuses under the left side fairing pocket. 3A and 10A. They both are wired into a harness that disappears into the darkness. Both fuses are in plastic holders that appear to be factory installed.

Any one have the same setup, and if so; what are they for ?
Neither my Honda owners shop manual, nor my Clymer manual reference anything regarding these 2 fuses.

According to my handy-dandy 1987 GL1200 Electrical Troubleshooting Manual...

The 3amp fuse is fed directly from the main 30amp fuse, and provides always-on power to the clock, cb transceiver, and radio (if your bike has these items). Probably provides power to memory settings to the radio and cb.
The 10amp fuse is switched power that provides main power to the same items as the 3amp fuse, and ALSO to the hazard/flasher relay and the power amp.

I know of 2 manual publishers who could use your knowledge.
I'm impressed !

Thank you very much. :D

Changed my 3 AMP one today and it turned on my trip computer which was not working at all. I read someplace that was the cause and who ever posted it was correct that the 3 AMP fuse is the one that powers up the trip computer so you can use it. It also turned out my stuck on fuel lamp that must be some sort of a warning that the 3 AMP is blown out and need to change it!
