Hi,
If the headlight is normally illuminated as you switch on the ignition ( i.e. for safety/ visibility ) it may be something as simple as a faulty bulb ( short circuit ), To check simply unplug the connector to the rear of the headlight unit.
Failing that, check the wiring around the steering head. It may have rubbed against the frame and caused a short.
Hope this helps
Regards Stan

SOURCE: Where is the main fuse on a 1998 Honda VTR 1000

if you can get to your battery, trace the red positive wire, until you find the fuse, or look for your fuse box, / pannel, and have a look in there.

SOURCE: electrical wiring short troubleshooting

You almost certainly have a bad coonnection somewhere, have a look behind the headlight to start with. Really, you need to do some electrical fault finding with a multi tester. Try to pin point exactly when the fuse is blowing - ie when u switch something on, or when you start up..... Some times the tank of these can rub o hole in the wiring loom underneath - check there. There are many electrical `potential` probs with gs`s but they can be rectified. Try the GSRESOURCE site for more assistance.

2002 Honda VFR 800 fuses keep blowing


Hi, Anonymous 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.

Fuse 16 keeps blowing when ignition is turned on (fuse for headlights), 1996 honda accord.


You have a short somewhere in the headlight wiring. I would start by unplugging the headlights and see if it still blows. If so then you might need to trace the wiring back (with the negative battery unplugged) and find where the wires are touching. If it doesn't blow with the headlights unplugged then you should just need to replace the headlights.

Main fuse blew on my vtr1000 f and when i try to replace it blows again even with the ignition off


There is obviously a short in the electrics somewhere! I would go over the wiring looking for wear marks on the cables and check battery terminals are not shorting to earth.

My main fuse blows when I connect the battery. it doesn't blow until I connect the plug from the harness


There must be a short somewhere in the wiring, sometimes in the loom that wraps around the steering head and bends when turning, could be simple like a blown headlight bulb and the broken filament is grounded

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.

2000 honda civic vp keeps blowing low beam fuses left and right.


Fuses nearly always blow because of a bad earth. The switch only needs to short for a moment and the fuse will blow.

See if you can find a replcement swtich from a local breaker's yard or ebay and go on from there.
