SOURCE: 1990 Honda Goldwing GL1500 lights go off when put in gear.

We had the same thing tonite. thanx to the guy that pointed us in the right direction.
More specificly, if you remove the seat, you will find two black plastic boxes, one on each side. they hold a 30-40 pin connector. the one on the left side (as you are sitting on it) we found one burned connection in the corner of the plug. a green wire. we cut the wire off both sides of the plugs & made a jumper (bypassed the plug) works good, even the cruise works now too.
hope this helps. now we can relax & have some beers EH!!

I blew two fuses on my 85 honda rebel 250 . I replaced the to fuses and started the bike up road for a little bit then shut if off blew one more fuse replaced again now no power. Good battery

What you need to do is determine what is causing the fuses to blow. normally it is something shorting out. definitely check all the wiring. by a repair manual for the bike. it will help out

Bike is blowing the starter fuse

Check all of your wiring. Sounds like there is a cut and making it ground out causing the fuse to blow to protect your bike.

Hi, Larry before diagnosing your blown fuse issue, check the bottom of your seat, if it's 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.

On 17th Aug.2011,I took delivery of a brand new Bajaj avenger. The sound quality of the horn was very poor, so I fixed a new roots horn. That day, after riding for 25 kms or so, suddenly the fuse blowed...

The electricity is present and available whenever the bike is turned on. No electricity flows until the button is pressed completing the circuit to the horn. Change to a 4amp fuse. The 2amp will blow due to the 3.5amp current draw. Be sure there are no bare spots in the wire, ( there shouldn't be considering it is a new bike ). Also keep in mind that the dealer is not responsible for horn or fuse or wiring problems since the factory horn has been replaced. The factory warranty does not cover aftermarket accessories or problems arising from same. If vibration is causing abrasion on a wire, do what you can to restrict the vibration and insulate the wire.

1994 honda magna fuse troubles

Check for shorts to the stator or rotor. It is part of the charging system under the left side cover. Sometimes they can get shorted out, and cause the fuse to blow. If you disconnect the plug for it, you can also test to see if the fuse still blows. If it doesn't, you have found your problem. You may need to unplug things and keep checking your fuse. When it stops blowing, you have found your problem. May want to get a resettable breaker till you find your problem.

Right turn signal blowing fuse

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.
