Right turn signal blowing fuse

I have 2004 vt750 Shadow until recently I'm experiencing fuse blow out each time I put the right indicators on. I replaced the bulbs, check the wiring continuity, but unable to see what causes the fuse blow out. I put a higher amp fuse (25 instead on 10 amp) to see if this works but all it does is make the left side indicator work, horn works fine but the right side makes the clicking noise but lights does not blink making the headlight blink slightly though. I suspect it could be the indicator relay but not really sure. Please advise ....

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.

Turn signal fuse nkeep blowing

Right front turn signal has a bare wire grounding out, has water in the lens, or has the wrong bulb stuffed in there somehow, or it is wired backwards. It is the right front, its the only one that turns on when you turn the key on...the rear doesn't. Check for a bare wire first.

Lights went out on my 94 Shadow 600?

probably a fuse but you will need to check the wiring for faults as in bare wires or around the steering head because of the left and right motion that can put stress on connections ,pinch wires ,or stretch them

Sounds like the wires have been plugged in wrong. You should be able to find schematics online for it. Here is a link to one place that may have what you're looking for.
This is fore a Kawasaki but they should have the one you want or at least the same make, witch would use the same color wires for things.
Also if you check the other end of the vehicle and see what wire go to what you may find the answer there. Good luck StehpehJP

2007 Honda Shadow VLX Deluxe instrument fuse keeps blowing

Hi, Michael before diagnosing your blown fuse issue, check the bottom of your seat, if its metal and comes in close proximity to the positive battery post you need to take the necessary steps to ensure there is no contact (electrical tape, thick rubber insulation, hammer a dent in the seat bottom etc.) You are going to need a wiring diagram 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 an 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.

I would disconnect each light, if you can get away with it, and ride around for a while...and see which one is blowing there a way to use a reset-able fuse, so you want have to keep putting in new fuses...just to test the ones on a house power strip, I always take them out when I find one thrown away, most are 15 amp...

I've Replaced The Fuel Pump & Relay On My VT1100C2 2004 But Still The Ignition Fuse Burns Could You Please Help

Begin by making sure that the fuse you are using is of the correct amperage. Then make sure there are no loose or corroded wire connections at the fuse holder (this can cause heat and fuses to blow).
The next step is to determine if the fuse blows as soon as you turn the key on, or is it when a certain action takes place (ie; when you turn the handlebars to one side or the other, or only when you use the left turn signal, etc.).
Then, if the problem still exists, inspect all wiring - especially for the circuit that is protected by the blown fuse. Look for chaffed wiring, carefully inspect every electrical connector for signs of corrosion or heat damage. As a final and more labor intensive step, un plug every device that is associated with the fuse in question, reconnecting each one at a time until the fuse blows. Then you've nailed it down.
