Picked up a 1991 GL 1500 SE with some problems.. tried cleaning starter switch that didn't work, So I purchased a brand new start button cruise control set up with the wiring installed it and the start button still does not work, it clicks and I get a click over by the relay switches on the left side of the bike. How do I troubleshoot the wiring. The reverse works but I noticed on the fuse panel when I pulled out the 5 amp fuse for the reverse it kept on popping the fuse. What is causing my brand new start button not to work. I can start the bike with a screwdriver on the solenoid but I would really like to start button to work any input on troubleshooting

This is the 1100 forum and a thread on an 1100, hopefully admin can move it to the appropriate place for you.
But you do say the reverse/start fuse keeps blowing but reverse still works? Does it blow before you push the start button or after?

Pull the reverse relay out and see if it still blows the fuse. If it doesn’t, then try a different relay in that spot and see if it blows the fuse. If it does blow the fuse with the relay out, then you may have a shorted reverse diode assembly.
