SOURCE: Fuses keep blowing
Ignition and the Horn/Brake fuses. If all 3 fuses are good then the ignition fuse will blow. I can either have the Horn/brake and the ignition fuse in or the light and the ignition fuse in but if all 3 are in the ignition will blow. Basically I'm riding either with out headlights or no brake lights/horn. Has anyone experienced this before?Sounds like a short in the wiring somewhere. I bet that somewhere along the wires the vibrations have caused one of the wires to wear through and its touching metal or another wire somewhere. ,,,

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:

I know this sounds aomewhat general, however please give the following some thought:
Check your relays, if you have an aftermarket horn you may have a different relay. To troubleshoot unplug your headlight, unplug your horn, etc.. Turn your ignition switch to accessory only. See if the fuse pops. If it does unplug whatever added accessories you may have still have plugged in. Once you can get the fuse to stop popping, turn the ignition switch to on. Then one at a time plug you accessory, headlight, etc. back in. When you find what pops the fuse, unplug that item, start plugging in the other items, if the fuse has not popped you have potentially isolated the circuit causing the issue. Now check the wiring for loose connections, bad ground, and CHECK the relay if that item has one. Hope this helps,

I don't have a wiring diagram for your '05 FLHRS but since the early '90's, Harley has used a turn signal cancelling unit to control the turn signals. Once you press a turn signal button, the turn signal controller activates the signal for specific lenght of time then it cancells the signal. There is a wire that comes out of the plug on this cancelling unit that goes to front turn signal and rear turn signal on each side of the bike. If you are blowing a fuse when the right turn signal is activated, I would suspect a short somewhere along the wire that comes from the turn signal cancelling unit going to either the front or rear signal light. The cancelling unit is a "black box" that is about 1 1/2 inch wide, about 3 inches long, and about a 3/4 inch thick. It may be located between the tanks on a split tank model or under the seat on other models.
