If I had to guess, the burning of fuses and bad battery issue is likely due to a bad coil in the charging circuit. if the coil is partially shorted, it'll overcharge the battery and/or blow the fuse (possible before or after damaging the battery).
check the impedance of the charge coil, and if you can get a hold of a backup for the charging circuitry (electronics, not the coil), replace it temporarily to see if that fixes the issue.

Have to check the voltage regulator for burned wires or yellowed connectors,, also looking over every wire on the bike you can get to would be a good idea,, something could just have rubbed thru the insulation on a wire resulting in a dead short,,, look carefully for the damaged wire,, It could easily be a voltage regulator
We just replaced the reg on a SV650 and that was the trouble,

More likely to be your ignition coils. They heat up and expand this can cause an open circuit which will close up again when it has cooled down. Although, a bad charging system may cause this problem. Check the battery voltage with engine switched off ( approx 12 volts) and with the engine running (approx 14 volts) If you are getting 14 volts then your battery is dead, if you aren't, then your charging system has a fault.

You have something that is staying on when it should be off such as a glove box, under hood, or trunk light. Maybe an electric antenna that keeps running. Maybe your brake lights are staying on. After eliminating the obvious, make sure everything is off and connect a test light between the positive battery post and the terminal. If the light burns, remove the fuses one at a time. When the light goes out or dims considerably, you have found the culprit.

Lights flickering at times and/or battery gets hot to the touch


When the regulator dies, it allows as much as 19 volts to appear across the battery. This is not good. It will cook the battery and the battery could even explode. Fuse can not stand up to this!

Burgman 250 will not start

Ck fuses and wire connections first. If no problem seen, get bike running and disconnect the ground cable @ battery. If bike dies the problem generally is in the stator or regulator assembly not keeping battery charged. Bike will run untill the battery is too low to keep the ignition system energized and the bike will die. If it continues running w/the ground disconnected, the battery could have a dead cell which will drain the battery in a very short time whether it is running or not.

It all seems to be leading to fuel starvation. Have you checked the tank breather is not blocked which can be a small hole in the petrol cap or a tube from under the tank. It could also be a blocked fuel filter. There should be two. One inside the fuel tank under the petcock, another before the fuel pump. Here is the workshop manual where you can find all info you will ever need for this bike.

05 katana 600f no spark!

sounds as if you have an issue with the charging system, try using a volt meter to determine if the bike is charging. To do so you will need to access the battery under the seat, with the bike running hook up the volt meter to the battery terminals, at idle you should have around 11volts when reving you should have around 13volts. If not you may have a bad stator or other electrical issues. good luck

Started and then died

the engine quit and the bike will not restart. No lights come on either. I believe I smelled a little burn odor just before the bike died. It was washed and dried yesterday but not started until this morning. Any ideas on what it might be?Sounds like some electrical troubleshooting is in order. Check all the fuses and connections for signs of frying if you smelled burning electrical components. Check your battery voltage and connections. and anything else you can see while poking around. This may involve touching parts of the bike that are not on the handlebars,
