Look at the end of the red cable coming from the battery. There will be a metal strip bolted to a plastic block. That is the main fuse. If it's not there it will be in the plug that goes on the starter relay.
Sometime when reversing polarity on the bike you can damage the engine management system. Check everything carefully. Hope you didn't. good luck.

SOURCE: Starter fuse. where is it? on

There isn't a fuse for the starter. The trouble you're having is most likely because of:

1) The main 30A fuse is blown. You found the spare, now all you've got to do is find where it goes. It should be in the vicinity of the starter relay (aka starter solenoid). Follow the positive battery cable, it will take you to the right spot.

2) Lose or corroded battery cable connections. Clean any corrosion from them and make sure they are securly connected to the battery.

3) The battery crapped out. These things have a tendency to suddenly give up and quit working without warning. Usually this occurs when the weather turns cold for the first time each season. Check the voltage. Normal voltage for a fully charged 12 volt battery is 12.7 ~ 13.5 volts. Less than 12.5 is suspicious.

4) Bad ignition switch or a bad electrical connection where the harness connects to the switch. There's a rectangular shaped, white plastic connector on the switch. Make sure it is connected securily to the switch and look for any signs of melting. If it looks deformed, disconnect it and scrape the corrosion from each electrical connection inside the plug with an Exacto knife or similar tool. While you've got it unplugged, check for battery voltage at the red wire inside the plug. If you've got voltage there, yet nothing works, the ignition switch is defective and must be replaced.

SOURCE: Getting no power to nothing. Battery good. starter relay

I don't think it's your relay, if you've got power to nothing.Unless it is somehow shorting to the frame.

Likely candidate is the key switch itself. Check the wire that feeds the switch from the battery. If it doesn't have power, you likely have a broken wire or hidden fuse.

If it's got power check the other wires coming from the switch for power with the switch on. If no power there, the switch is bad.

No volume after battery short

When the battery polarity is reversed any low impedance circuits such as the audio output stage of a car radio will take a massive amount of current that is likely to destroy semiconductor devices very quickly.
You might be lucky and find a fuse has blown or the copper tracks of a circuit board could be melted...

Polarity was reversed when jump starting vehicle installed new battery & no power to anything mechanic said fuse got blown.What fuse,where it is located & cost of it.

Hard to say without make, year, and model-but check all fuses in the power distribution box under the hood- ignition, alternator fuse, etc.-all of them, the small ones and the maxi-fuses. All fuses are pretty cheap. If you still have nothing, you may need a wiring diagram to check for fusible links that would be power distributors right off or near the battery. Fusible links work much like a fuse, and most have been replaced by maxi-fuses, but many vehicles have both. If there is a designated main fuse, it should be in the distribution block or box under the hood.

Car wouldn't crank but can be jumped off and had power. Cleaned the corrision off the cables and it would do fine. Couple of days later do it again. I got stranded in it at store and got jumped off....

Yu don't say which fuse has blown. It seems the battery was the original problem, but you may have "grounded" something in replacing the battery, or you may have accidently reversed the cables (polarity). Check all is well with the battery installation, replace the fuse (with the same vaue) and test if you still have the starting problem. If yes, I would get the starter motor checked out. It may be drawing excessive current whilst cranking.

Meade LX200GPS telescope

The front panel for the telescope has an internal fuse. Remove the screws and look at the circuit board for a fuse. Replace with the same type and rating. The telescope has a diode with the fuse that gives some protection against reverse polarity, and the telescope should function on this fix.
