I have checked all bulbs and they work left turn flashes ok but right turn just stays on. please help...There's a short-circuit in the indicator circuit. I've had this one before! The insulation on one of the wires has worn away so when you put current through the indicator circuit it shorts out puts a surge through the system, and the main fuse blows to protect the other electrics! Generally wire insulation wears fastest under the gas tank. Lift the tank and you'll see a bundle of wires running up the center of the frame under the tank. Have a really good look at these wires to see if any are worn (if you can see just a tiny bit of metal, or even if the insulation is just thin, that's probably your problem. Tiny and easy to fix with electrical tape - but can be hard to find!). You may have to look at each wire in that bundle individually - if there's no obvious short on the outside, it could be shorting against another wire on the inside. If there's no problem here, check the rest of the indicator wires all over the bike for good insulation. Good luck. It can be quick to find, or it can take all day. But once found just wrap it with electrical tape, problem solved and you'll feel much better.... Incidentally, if the fuse is blowing, check that the regulator and the battery are still OK. Sometimes the regulator is damaged and the battery overcharges (this can happen weeks or months later).,,,

My bike keeps blowing the indacator/brake fuse when using high rev's


Hi, Mark before diagnosing your blown fuse issue you are going to need a wiring from your service manual a test light, an ohmmeter and plenty of extra fuses. If you turn on your ignition switch and immediately blow a fuse you have a hard/dead short and is usually easy to find. With a test light connected to the hot side of the blown fuse holder start stabbing the wire/s that leads away from the fuse holder and towards the ignition switch, you test light will illuminate validating the short. When the test light fails to illuminate you have passed the short and need to back up until the test light illuminates, then look in the immediate area for the short.
If you driving down the road for 30 minutes or 15 miles and blow a fuse you have soft/flying short and may take some time and patience to find.
If the main fuse/circuit breaker constantly blows/trips while riding you probably have a faulty battery terminal connection. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary. Any other fuses that constantly keep blowing while riding are usually caused by a loose or corroded ground wire in the circuit, which means you have to check, inspect, test each and everyone with and ohm meter set on a low ohm scale 100 ohms or less . Simply touch one lead to the ground source and the other lead to the battery negative terminal, a reading of zero indicates a clean solid ground. Any number reading or infinity indicates a poor ground and needs to be repaired. Poor or weak grounds require excessive additional amperage to complete the circuit which in turn blows the small amperage fuse.

Sportster keeps blowing headlight, tail light and turn signal fuses.


You've got either a short or grounding problem somewhere causing all that. Check the wiring, make sure none of it is worn through the protective jacket to the wire, which may be touching other metal on the bike and shorting out, just as it would in your home electrical wiring and fuse box. Blowing or tripping a fuse protects you and the rest of the electrical system from further damage. If you can't find anything, check with a local repair shop.

Bike has shut down while running.no ignition,lights or any indication of electrical power


Check the fuse box for blown fuses. There is probably a main fuse that turns off power to the entire bike. It is some times separate from the other fuses and is normally located on or near the starter solenoid.

check all wiring harnesses where the wires are tight together it sounds like you just have another cut wire that you cant seem to find, and please mention if its the same fuse that keeps blowing or is it a different one every time, and if you find no cut wires then double check all the grounds.

Indicator problem


The flasher unit is called the TSSM module. It is a combined flasher and alarm unit. A new one will require your alarm keyfobs to be matched to it. An expensive unit if faulty. If you replaced the earth wires and now its blowing fuses, then I would check your work. The fault has changed after you worked on the vehicle so logic dictates you have caused this. The black wire is usually the earth on these indicators but it is a possibility that these are routed through the TSSM module. You might have done damage if this is so.

Right turn signal blowing fuse


Fuses are a SAFETY device. Never replace fuses with larger amp ones. Take the bike to an authorized repair shop and get it done right. There could be a short or relay problem that can lead to more extensive problems down the road. Safety devices are put in place to protect you and the system. Like in a home: if you run 14-2w/grd to light fixture the max fuse to use is 15amp fuse. never put a 20 in because the wire can melt at higher amps. Same with your bike. the wire is not rated to handel more than is was designed and fused for.
