Question about 2008 Yamaha Royal Star Venture
Keep in mind a blown fuse indicates and overload situation.
There is a short somewhere in the system.
Have the wiring system checked.
Things you can do yourself,
1. Check for water collection in the turn signals or instrument panel.
(If found dry out and seal to prevent repeat contamination)
Blinkers easy.... instrument panel you may want some professional.:)
2. Turn on blinkers and twist the handle bars full left then full right.
If the fuse blows during either of these two operations note which one.
Left or right then check the wiring running to that blinker. You may
find the short this way.
3. Check the battery before and after engine start up.
Your voltage should be around 12.6 volts rested. Engine not running.
Your voltage will probably be 13 volts Plus with the engine running.
Over 14 volts this could be why the fuse is blowing.
Have the rectifier checked.
Gel-cells resting voltage 12.9 to 13 volts
First things first. A 12-volt battery is not a 12-volt battery. Twelve volts is just a nominal, convenient term used to distinguish one battery from another. A fully-charged 12-volt battery, allowed to "rest" for a few hours (or days) with no load being drawn from it (or charge going to it), will balance out its charge and measure about 12.6 volts between terminals.
When a battery reads only 12 volts under the above conditions, it's almost fully depleted. Actually, if a battery's resting voltage is only 12.0 to 12.1 it means only 20 to 25% of its useful energy remains. It's either a goner or it has been deep cycled, and a battery can only be deep-cycled a limited number of times before it is indeed dead.
Hope this helps!
