If the fuse blows up, there's definitely a shorted circuit somewhere the line. We need to find out where the short circuit is coming from. One way to do a trace is to start from the headlights / Tail lights since it is only one line going to the fuse box. Remove all the bulb from the head light and tail light and then replace the fuse. Turn on the key and if it doesn't blow, that means one the bulbs are shorted. If it blew , check the relay switch by replacing it, make sure that you insulate all the terminals, inspect the cable for any exposed wires. Usually just by looking at the wiring, you may see some burn signs. One thing to remember when removing connections is to label them one at a time. Trust me. You don't want to create more problems simply by making wrong connections in the end. Sometimes getting your hands a bit dirty is worth it. Another tip to tracing a wire (especially if it's same color in all of those bundled ones) is to hold one end and then try pulling the other end to see if it's the right one. A voltmeter is going to be handy as well if you have one and know how to use it just to check for continuity of wires.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Where is the main fuse

The main fuse should be located in the left side cover just below the seat

SOURCE: HI...I have a 2008 V

I think you will find it on the starter relay, under a cover that also has wires in it.

My main fuse on 900 vulcan 2011 keeps blowing just when I try to put it in. Does anybody have any ideas? this bike has very ow miles and is kept in guarage.


Low battery will not blow a fuse. If it blows right away when you turn on the ignition you have a main electrical short. Disconnect the regulator to the battery connector at the regulator to see if you have a shorted regulator. After the main fuse blows you should not have a battery drain so figure out also why your battery is discharged. Is your batttery no good. This would not blow a fuse in any case. Was the battery out recently, or disconnected. Make sure it is installed correctly and none of the wires are connected incorrectly. THEN you will have to start tracing the wiring from the main fuse to find the short circut.

Wiring hook up


Hi, Anonymous you have a dead short which is usually the easiest to find. Using a test light connected to the hot side of the blown fuse holder, start probing the wire leaving the fuse holder about an inch away the test light should illuminate, keep probing towards the ignition switch until the test light no longer illuminates you are now very close to the short.

Starter relay fuse blows everytime i hook the battery up!


You have a direct short to ground somewhere. Id start by checking all the wires where they would be getting the most heat. Then start checking around the bars,switch housings to make sure nothing is pinched.

Blowing ignition fuse


Hi, Sky before diagnosing your blown fuse issue you are going to need a wiring 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 and 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.

Can a voltage regulator/rectifier if not working properly blow the main fuse. I have a 2002 v-star 1100. I was riding when all of a sudden the bike died on me. I lost all power no light, turn signals,...


YES!
Good link here:
http://www.flygenring.dk/yamaha/artikler/1100ChargingSystem.pdf

Symptoms:
Lights flickering at times and/or battery gets hot to the touch

Problem:
Reglator/Rectifier

When the regulator dies, it allows as much as 19 volts to appear across the battery. This is not good. It will cook the battery and the battery could even explode. Fuse can not stand up to this!

Something is causing the fuse to blow, its hard to say what it is without seeing the bike, but more then likely, you have a shorted out wire somewhere or a bad ground wire, possibly to your battery,
