    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.

Kawasaki z750 2004 model when u insert key every thing comes on except the fuel pump bike seems like its getting no fuel

remove and test fuel pump relay if the fuse to it is good.try swaping it with another one like it just to see if thats it.(or using a test lead with a fuse of its own see if you can bypass the system power at the pump to make the pump work,that way its only the pump you are testing instead of the whole fuel system)
