Ignition and the Horn/Brake fuses. If all 3 fuses are good then the ignition fuse will blow. I can either have the Horn/brake and the ignition fuse in or the light and the ignition fuse in but if all 3 are in the ignition will blow. Basically I'm riding either with out headlights or no brake lights/horn. Has anyone experienced this before?Sounds like a short in the wiring somewhere.  I bet that somewhere along the wires the vibrations have caused one of the wires to wear through and its touching metal or another wire somewhere. ,,,

Buell xb9 blowing head light and fuses


Hi, Anonymous you have a dead short which is usually the easiest to find. Using a test light connected to the hot side of the blown fuse holder, start probing the wire leaving the fuse holder about an inch away the test light should illuminate, keep probing towards the ignition switch until the test light no longer illuminates you are now very close to the short. For more information about your issue and free downloads that you will need please visit the websites below, and for specific information or questions, please feel free to contact me at xlch@mail.com.

A/t Cont fuse Nissan Navara keeps blowing


Fuses only blow if the load is heavier than it is designed for. Most likely causes are, Shorted wire. Defective part To small fuse. If you have the correct fuse then somewhere in the wiring circuit is asking for too much. You need a good electrical tech to find out your cause. If it blows the fuse once a month then this can be a pain in the rear to find the cause. Most wiring is made very durable. Look for damaged areas, or where work has been performed in the past and wiring has been disturbed and not properly secured. Look for alterations, Hope that helps.

My son is in the Navy and bought a new 2006 Buell in San Diego. During his deployment one of his ''buddy's'' wrecked the Buell. No insurance since he was deployed for 9 months. I'm trying to fix the bike...


Buell is owned by Harley-Davidson. What that means is, whatever parts you need, you are going to pay through the nose. I can give you, however, three websites that might give you a decent price, the last one (buellxb) is a Buell Forum; you can join the forum for free and ask around there about parts. I would also tell your son's "buddy" to cough up the dough. Just for the record, I am a retired Chief Petty Officer; if his "buddy" is active duty, you can force him to pay for the damage. If you ahve any more questions don't hesitate to ask! etc_johnsonatyahoodotcom (hint!)
