SOURCE: Ignition Fuse keeps blowing
From another forum,
"You've got an exposed hot wire somewhere in the power circuit that's grounding out and causing resistance in the wire. Not sure how to help on this one, electrical problems are damn near invisible, but I'd start looking for a burn mark or scorched insulation on any of the wiring leading up the relay, starter, or main fuze block in the tail."

SOURCE: starter relay fuse keeps blowing
30 amps is heavy, so bypass nothing. Look for a short in a heavy circuit like the the headligh, starter (questionable because of delay) same with starter relay. You have a wire shorting out on the frame somewhere. It's that cut and dry.. Go to the auto parts store and buy an automatic circuit breaker that matches the fuse type your bike uses. but instead of a 30 amp, get a 20 or 25 amp. As long as theres a short it will trip and reset by itself saving you the hassle of changing fuse every few minutes.. While the breaker cycles on and off you can search for the short. When you find it, the breaker will stop cycling and stop in the on or reset. Good Luck

I hope you have a jack... I had to remove the pipes and bags on my 04 vulcan nomad so I remove the cotter pin and pull the axle out of the rear hub. Then removed the spcer and rear brake. slide wheel assy. out of the drive hud on the left (removal of brake and spacer allow this) and drop the tire down. It's not hard...

Testimonial: "thanks for the help I am sure that I can do this now."
SOURCE: Starting fault
There is also a safety switch on the clutch lever that could give the same symptoms.
Another thing to check is the fuse block that has a starter relay built in (hidden) above the fuse compartment. My D5 has the same symptoms and this is the problem. If I keep the starter button depressed for some seconds the relay operates and bike starts.
