Phone charger blowing the main fuse

Okay I am having a problem with the charging port on my 1987 goldwing interstate 1200i. I need to get a solution. I was thinking about wiring it directly to the battery with an in-line fuse and a power switch. Any suggestions?

Re: Take Off Your Helmet??

Sure I take off my helmet.....when I'm PARKED!!! I watched a guy today park his bike and go into the liquor store and come out with his purchase and he never took his helmet or armoured jacket off. Not really sure what he was concerned about in there. It's not like they will let you drink it there ...

Re: brake and clutch bleeding q's

Might have to hammer on a deep well socket. I used one to break it loss then I used a wrench to do the bleed and a socket to tighten it back up.

Re: seat omfort

I'm 6'4" I also have this problem. My seat needs reupholstering anyway so I might have the shop modify it for me.
