Hello

I am assuming that this is an ELECTRICAL issue for the above problem so I will answer electrically as it wasn't 100% clear.

Its because somwhere down the line you SHORT-CIRCUITED the 2 wires going to the reverse light of your motor bike. If it is just ONE wire going from the reverse fuse to the reverse light then the main problem must be that the wire's insulation somewhere is going to earth (metal chassis of your bike) before it actually reaches the bulb hence it blows your fuse. First try by removing the bulb and see if it still blows without the bulb in place. Then this means that you will just have to check from the bulb holder to the fuse for any cuts in the wire etc. Your problem is a short-circuit.

Hope that this helps :) I love bikes :)

Best Regards

Battery fuse blows when i hook up new battery


With battery disconnected, take a meter reading [resistance / ohms] across the battery leads. It sounds like you have close to a short circuit in your primary charging/supply circuit. 0.6 ohm will take out a 20 amp fuse. Ohms law I = V/R. Quite a few other factors to take into account but you'll have to find what's causing the low resistance.

Bike is blowing the starter fuse


Check all of your wiring. Sounds like there is a cut and making it ground out causing the fuse to blow to protect your bike.

Main fuse keeps blowing


You stated your loadtested battery? Try another known good battery as I have seen very odd things happen with these maintainence free batterys sometimes such as polarity swapping. This would cause the same main fuse blowing as if you were hooking the battery up backwards.Then begin by un plugging the ignition switch. If fuse blowing stops the problem is in the harness somewhere between the fuse and ign. switch. Possible wire pinched or rubbed through and grounding. From the ignition switch the main fuse voltage goes to the distribution(common) side of the fuse box. Inspect the wiring from the switch to the fuse box. This problem has to be pre fuse box in location otherwise the lower amperage circuit fuse in the box would be blowing. Good luck!

Why does my honda shadow 1100 american classic keep blowing 10 amp ignition fuse


DOES YOUR BIKE HAVE CORRECT IGNITION COIL IF IT TOO HIGHLY RATED I.E A SPORTS COIL YOU WILL PUT EXCESSIVE CURRENT THROUGH FUSE CAUSING IT TO BLOW. IS THE FUSE HOLDER SECURED DOWN VIBRATION CAN MAKE FUSES BLOW LIKE BULB FILAMENTS {TRY A 15AMP FUSE] IF THAT BLOWS DEFINATE OVER RATED COIL

Had it on the battery charger last night hit the light switch, now i have no neutral light in dash or any power. i checked the main fuse its good. are there any circuit breakers to look for. need help...


You dont say what bike this is? However this is a common problem, locate the starter solenoide, here you will find a red plastic cover, remove it and you should find a 30amp main fuse, this fuse is to protect the circuit but it is a common blow while jump starting or charging the battery with the ignition turned on, (tip always connect battery and or charger with ignition turned off, a spark from electrical devices at the battery can cause the battery to explode)

Blowen fuses


You should check whether your charging system is functioning correctly Aaron - common problem on Daytona unfortunately to lose either stator and/or R/R 
See this guide that I authored on diagnozing charging issues and a recommendation for an improved solution that will greatly imprrove your charging performance and relibility.

MAIN FUSE KEEPS BLOWING FROM TIME TO TIME WHEN I RIDE. STARTED HAPPENING AFTER JUMPING THE BATTERY WITH A CAR WHILE THE CAR WAS RUNNING. MECHANIC CANT TRACE THE CAUSE OF THE FUSE BLOWING. WHAT SHOULD I DO?...


there has to be something simple. check for broke/melted wires, wiggle test wires to make it blow fuse. how long does it take to blow fuse. does the fan go on.do you have to ride it to get it to blow?
