Check the wiring to your license plate light. Mine were frayed, which caused the fuse to blow when they'd short. I'd lose the headlights, tail-lights, and instruments (but the engine kept running fine). After repairing the wires, I've been trouble free. I hope this helps.

The fan motor can be going bad. BUT, check the wiring to the fan along the frame for rubs or brake in the insulation and check the plug for a burnt connection. Any loose connection can cause enough heat to blow the fuse. Check all this. Hope this helps Fix Ya up.

Digital display has disappeared on dash.Was ok

Some VFR's had a problem with the printed circuit board behind the clocks. A track or two could corrode away giving all kinds of electrical faults. If you can remove the dash unit you may be able to see any lost tracks and repair them by soldering in a bit of wire.
