    I have a 82 z 750 (K) ltd twin. My bike blows the fuse when I open the throttle too quickly; ( MAINLY WHEN COLD)! Then everything is dead. If I disconnect the light circuit; (BROWN WIRE IN HEADLIGHT BUCKET), the new fuse stays unblown and I can start and ride the bike w/out lights to make it home.

    If I don't disconnect the brown wire and only change the fuse I can wait a couple hrs. and the bike starts and runs w/out disconnecting anything; (RUNS NORMAL)?!?! Any ideas????? (FRUSTRATING)!

To my knowledge, there are no onboard electrical/electronic components capable of shorting and blowing the fuse with out blowing any of the secondary fuse. The main fuse could possibly blow due to a short in the wiring or an exposed/frayed wire touching the body. The three most likely areas would be:

  • wire harness leading to the regulator;
  • wire harness leading to the fusebox; and/or
  • wire harness leading to the ignition switch.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

On my '93 Kawasaki voyager xii my main fuse keeps blowing, where should I start looking?

Providing you've got the right fuse (10A) then the place to look is the regulator/rectifier. If this is failing then it will be throwing to much power through the system and the main fuse is blowing to protect the bike. they are an easy plug off/plug on item to change..

Left key in ignition overnight, had to jump start bike. now the main fuse keeps blowing

You haven't said what model or year of kawasaki.

Some newer bikes aren't supposed to be jump started. Take the battery off the bike, replace the fuse, charge the battery on a proper charger overnight (as opposed to a battery conditioner like optimate). It should now start fine and not blow the fuse.

If that doesn't sort it, the dealer will need to reset something.

I have a 1989 750 kawasaki I get no power thur the key the batter has power but I have not lights or power thru the key

You either have a blown main fuse usually located by the starter solenoid. Follow the positive battery cable to the starter solenoid and locate the main fuse . See if it is blown and replace it if necessary. The other possibility is that the electrical contacts in the base of the ignition switch are dirty and no longer making a connection when the key is turned on. Take the contact base off of the bottom of the switch, clean the contacts, and put it back together noting where all the little pieces go and being careful not to lose any. If the switch is not repairable replace it with a new one.

F1 light came started missing and losing power

Some wire with positive current has been scratched and touches probably the frame or something grounded.Start from around the steering axle and around the fusebox to find it and isolate it with duct tap.
