OK, we'll need a bit more information. Which fuses exactly are blowing? Does it happen as soon as you press the button, or not until you actually start moving in reverse?

You have a problem somewhere in your reverse system - obviously. The fact that it is blinking as you describe indicates that it is identifying a problem. The reverse system is very complex, and diagnosing it is a little beyond a forum posting: the diagnostics procedure in the service manual is 11 pages long! If you're quite familiar with the workings of your bike, the relays, starter, reverse actuator, etc. I would say go for it, otherwise this might be a problem for a dealer (or knowledgeable mechanic).
