You have something creating a short. I would start by looking at your ignition components and tracing the wiring looking for a bare wire or something that has been rubbing on the frame.

SOURCE: 2004 Buell XB12S Ignition Fuse Always Blows

I assume you've got the right amperage of fuse in there? Your starter may be starting to fail, and drawing more current than usual when it attempts to start the engine. It's also possible that bad bearings or some other internal problem is creating more friction inside the engine than normal, thus making the starter work harder.

Buell xb9 blowing head light and fuses


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.

Keep Blowing Fuses


Check the circuit for the fuse that keeps blowing. Whatever it(the fuse) powers is probably shorting to ground or is bad.

Ignition fuse blows. If I remove the Ignition relay, the engine will turn over and the fuse is fine until I replace the relay. Tried swapping relays and got same results.


The fuse blows because of the amount of current being drawn through it without a proper ground. When you install the fuse there is a rush of electricity being pulled through the relay to power the ignition and POP goes the fuse. If you Put the relay in with the key off It probably doesn't blow the fuse.

Fuses keep blowing


Ignition and the Horn/Brake fuses. If all 3 fuses are good then the ignition fuse will blow. I can either have the Horn/brake and the ignition fuse in or the light and the ignition fuse in but if all 3 are in the ignition will blow. Basically I'm riding either with out headlights or no brake lights/horn. Has anyone experienced this before?Sounds like a short in the wiring somewhere.  I bet that somewhere along the wires the vibrations have caused one of the wires to wear through and its touching metal or another wire somewhere. ,,,
