Question about 2003 Yamaha V Star Classic
Sprayed the brake switch, with what? Water? If so, you can try to use some contact cleaner spray and spray into the switch area and work the switch to help it penetrate. WD40 is also a water displacement item which might help, but it may also require relubrication of the brake lever/perch. You may also check on the perch to see if you can clean and dry the wiring connector that runs from the perch back. A hair dryer or heat gun might help dry it out also.

under the left side of the gas tank you will see i black knob/screw at the end of what looks like a hose. the knob faces the rear of bike. that adjusts the idle. its real easy to find and the only adjustment you can make to the carbs.

There seem to a 'live' wire (in the turn signal, brake light or horn circuit) touching the frame of the bike and thus the fuse blowing.
You will have to trace out the short-circuit.
You can start wth removing the connections to the turn signals thn fit the fuse and see if it still blows ....like wise remove the wire to the brake light and thn check if the fuse blows, same to the horn.
In short ..you can remove all the wires connections to these and thn fit the fuse and refit the wiring connections one by one ,where the fuse will blow after connecting the wire to say brake light thn the problem is at the brake light wiring ....likewise to the others ...onces you identify the circuit tht has the problem thn it will be easy to trace it and rectify it.
Hope this helps!
