SOURCE: as soon as I start the gs500f a 20 amp fuse blows

Sounds like time to remove the fareings, gas tank and seat.
There may be a loose somewhere on the bike. Remove the seat and gas tank to gain access to the wiring harness. Get a volt Ohmmeter as you may need to check continuity at various points. Start at the battery, then the fuses and the wires connecting to the fuses. Inspect for burned wires, abraded wires, loose and/or dirty connections, bad connectors and loose wires. This means the mass of wires inside the headlight must also be inspected. Check the handlebar kill switch and the side stand kill switch as well. Go all the way to the ignition system. Check the key switch. Put it on "run" and check for power through the switch as you jiggle the wires. A spark can blow a fuse. A hot wire thst is going to ground due to an abraided wire will blow a fuse. a bad electrical part like a shorted horn, headlight or switch can blow a fuse. Find the bad connection and you should be able to fix it.

Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer?

possibly needs a carb clean, but sounds more like it needs a valve adjustment.

SOURCE: We have a 2005 GS 500F. The turn signals stopped

Try replacing the indicator relay, the fuse won't just go unless the circuit has been overloaded (unlikely if you haven't touched it) the relay will be somewhere by the headlight, as for the fuses they usually are located to the left or right below where your handle bars are (under the plastic cover/fairing)

SOURCE: 2007 Suzuki GS500F, Starter problem

weak wires are sometimes the cause of loss of power,if they have been really hot from trying to start and become higher in resistance. looking at the ends of wires where connection are sometimes can reveal bluing of the copper inside (signs of heat). loose cable ends look good but dont perform well.Test charging system for proper charge output to voltage reg. and battery.Short tolerance to load under start conditions could be due to not being charged at high enough volts from charging system. (too many chicken lites or other stuff drawing current)

Hello everyone I have a 2015 Suzuki M50 I tried to connect aftermarket turnsignals but as soon as I connected one it blew a fuse. Now everytime I try to connect my original signal it blows the fuse.


Hi, Clinton before diagnosing your blown fuse issue check the bottom of your seat if its 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 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.

I have a 2003 Suzuki Volusia that blows the 15 amp ignition fuse randomly.Can go weeks without a problem then it will blow. I replace it and it is fine or other times it blows repeatedly.


Wendy, Check the starters wiring circuit for a pinched/bare/damaged wire. Check the attached links,instruction and guides,good info. to trouble shoot your problem. Good luck

Why does the headlight fuse blow constantly on a suzuki vs 800?


You have a short circuit in the positive wire somewhere between the fuse box and the light. It apparently has a break in the insulation or a bare spot where the insulation has worn through allowing it to ground out somewhere along the way. The most likely point of damage is at the front fork.

Keeps blowing 30 amp main fuse


have the wire traced from the fuse. There may be a short somewhere in the line. Inspect the wiring for exposed conductors or loose wiring.

Ignition fuse keep popping everytime i turn my steering wheel on my rf900


This sounds like a loose connection in the ignition wires. Anytime a spark is created the voltage in the like spikes. The spike is blowing the fuse. Find the loose connection ( or abraded wire, bad ground, etc.), and fix it.

I have a 2007 1200 nightster. When I turn the ignition to the on position, it blows the ignition fuse. I have trouble shot it over and over. Changed the battery and all the fuses. I don't know what to do...


Now, this sounds like a short in your wiring, I worked on one of these bikes that the wiring harness rubbed against the frame under the left side cover, Blows a fuse and will blow the fuse intermittently or it may not today but 2 or 3 days from now riding it will blow the fuse again, Check the wiring harness the complete bike from head to tail. Look for a real close fit at any spot over/under the frame / covers then check the Insulation for a rub that may have rubbed bare any wires. Check all this. NOW, you still need to check any fuses and or wiring rubs or breaks in the wire, even check harness plugs and the metal tabs inside the plugs for burnt or hot spots. Metal tabs in the plugs can get hot then cool off due to a short and loose a connection. Blowing fuses like this is a good sign of a short in the main wiring. ie. battery,lights and or ign. to and from the handle bars and area. Look in this area for your problem. Look around the front forks and headlight area under the frame mounts. We need to check your battery connection- Follow the main battery wire from the battery to the start relay. In with the relay should be other wires and at least one fuse. Check these connections and any wires in/out for a good tight fit in the plug. Look closely for a loose wire or loose fit in this plug. Now this relay will have another wire that goes down to the starter. Look for the next largest wire out of this plug / relay follow that wire as best you can along the harness look at any other connections / plugs from the harness, even plastic ties to the frame that may be to tight. Pull this wire tug on it yank on it. Next check your key switch any wiring here should be a plug that you can un-plug and look at the wiring there.
