1984 aspencade main fuse by battery

Postby bikermedic71 » Mon Aug 23, 2010 1:07 pm



My 84 aspencade died while riding. I took the left panel off and noticed the fuse that is just off of the battery was melted. I am new to this bike stuff and trying to fix it myself but I have no idea how the fuse comes off without cutting wires to replace it. any ideas how to do this or if it is another problem causing this. thanks alot

Hey there, I had a similar issue with my aspencade. The solinoid switch which is next to the battery was the culpit, clean all the connections on the solinoid and replace the fuse which is located under a plastic cover on the solinoid that will hopefully bring it back to life, I just cleaned it with some light sand paper and contact cleaner.

Now I have another question. How do you get the fuse out. I have taken the screws off and I can't get it out.

If you have the screws out of the fuse it should come out or lightly pry it out with a flat head screwdriver. But it should come out for ya.

Then replace it with a weatherproof blade fuse holder, and you can use commonly found blade fuses in the future. Have a look at this thread

I agree with wingadmin on the auto fuze. I live and ride in a sub-tropical climate where even tires rust and corrode. The pigtail/fuze holder with the 30amp ATO fuse can be had at any auto parts store. I found one that had a rubber cap to help keep out the moisture. Replacement ATO fuzes can be pound just about anywhere including most convenient stores should you need one.
