No electric

Post by »

Ok blew the radio fuse that guessing was for the speakers last week. Fixed it. Today on long trip blew it again. I replaced blew immediately. I replaced . Seemed fine. Rode 10 miles and lost all electrics. Bike shutoff. No dash lights etc. I checked the fuse and realized I put in a higher amp fuse. Darn color blind I guess. So now I need help. Don't have any idea where to check the 30 amp main fuse seems ok.

If a fuse blows, I'll replace it once, just in case the problem was the fuse. If it blows again, it's time to find the source of the problem - not just install another fuse. And especially a larger fuse, like you (mistakenly) did.

Check the master fuse next, but you've got a short somewhere that needs to be fixed. You'll find the master fuse directly to the right of the battery.
