The original is located behind a trap door on the starter solenoid.Unplug it to open the door.There's usually a extra one in the lid.

I bought a brand new battery installed it and the wires touched the starter ignition and spark after that I had no start so I was told it could be the Dogbone fuse all my other fuses are good still

Check for battery volts on the 2 big red wires that come from the 4 wire plug on the start solenoid.The fuse is between them and the battery connection.

After you find it you should replace it was a new fuse/holder.

I replaced the "dog bone" fuse on both my GL500 Silverwing and my GL1000 Goldwing with a modern spade style 30 amp fuse. You can get the holder with pigtails and fuse for under $10. http://www.ebay.com/itm/5-Pack-10-Gauge ... SwARZXol7i The advantage to these is you can get the fuses at any parts store. Even convenient stores carry them. Another advantage is you can kill the power to the entire bike quickly by pulling the simple fuse. The old dog bone fuses are attached with screws and nut.
