Question about 1999 Yamaha V Star Custom
1999 yamaha v star custom 1100 worked great then a fuse blew put a new one in and it keeps popping without bike on help
Manufacture wiring is usually pretty solid and when stuff like this happens, it is usually because something changes.
Which fuse is it? Usually there is a label on the fuse box.
Please clarify the circumstances of how this happened. Were you riding along at freeway speeds in a straight line, or perhaps leaned over in a sharp curve, or performed any recent changes/repair to the bike?
Any way, the fuse is the built in weak point to protect whatever is using the power from the battery. The problem is between the fuse and the end device(s).
As always... look the bike over really well and be sure to look for anything odd like wires up against something hot or wrapped around corners and other possible chafing points.
Find out what that circuit supplies power to and remove at least one device from that circuit.
Be sure to only do one at a time.
For each thing disconnected, check and see if the fuse blows again. ( I found an ohm meter will be misleading at times so I just invest in fuses for this test) Also, as you disconnect each device, with the fuse removed, check the hot wire (power supply) of that device for ground (with an ohm meter). If it is grounded, the problem may lie between that device and the fuse.
