87 GL1200 Aspencade ignition fuse keeps blowing

Postby Chippom » Mon Jun 07, 2010 7:53 pm



Bike ran great yesterday but when I went out to start it this morning it turned over once and then nothing checked the ignition fuse and sure enough it was blown. Changed it twice and the same thing both times.Turns over one time and blows the fuse. Does anyone have any ideas on what the problem might be? I sure would apreciate any help!!

Sounds like you've got a short to ground somewhere in the ignition circuit. Start tracing wires and looking for worn insulation, melted insulation, melted connector, etc. Are you talking about the main fuse? That's a 30 amp fuse, so wherever the short is it's dumping some serious current and will probably show up as heat.

[quote][/quote] No it's not blowing the main fuse just the 10amp ignition fuse in the fuse block. All the lights,instument panel ect... and everything stay on just the starter wont do anything after the fuse blows and when i hit the starter button the headlight goes dim like something is drawing heavy on the battery.I change the fuse it will turn over once and blow the new 10amp fuse. I have a brand new battery with a good charge in it.
