The fact you said you rode it a little before the fuse blew makes me thing arcing at bad or loose connection, damage wire. May look for a spot where rubber insulation around wire is cut and may be arcing off metal somewhere. The diagram show battery + goes through main fuse to regulator and then ignition switch. I think I would start out checking wires and connection from battery to ignition and regulator.

Some positive wire must be stripped and is touching your frame or something that is grounded. It is impossible to know which wire is that from here.
You need to check your wire harness closely all the way for a stripped wire.
Especially under the fuel tank and around the steering tree.

Replace the starter relay in the fuse box behind the glove box. The fuse ONLY powers the control coil portion of the starter relay. If it's blowing, there's a short in the winding or a short between the relay and the theft deterrent module. Bad relay is most likely culprit

Starter relay shorts out when I try to start my bike

I guess define shorts out....It melts, it blows fuse. I guess the best way to start is to remove relay and find the wire from the relay socket that operates the starter and apply 12volts. with a fused jumper wire. if the fuse blows than there its either a bad starter or a short to ground on the wire going to the starter. if it turns over fine, then there is a problem from the starter switch to the relay or wiring at the relay box.

I have a 82 gl 1100 goldwing. The previous owner

The fuse on the starter solenoid is the main fuse for the bike. If that fuse was removed and replaced with a wire, you could melt down the entire harness or even burn up the cycle. The short that was popping the fuse has probably melted part of the harness or popped fuses in another part of the bike. Start checking in the main fuse box in the fake tank for shorts. Also check the solenoid with the main fuse for melt down, good luck.

Can a voltage regulator/rectifier if not working properly blow the main fuse. I have a 2002 v-star 1100. I was riding when all of a sudden the bike died on me. I lost all power no light, turn signals,...

Good link here:

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!

My 2003 1100 just lost all power. no horn lights or start. checked fuse box n battery. still nothing. ANY HIDDEN FUSES?

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

A most likely possibility is the main fuse located inside the starter relay.  To locate the starter relay, follow the cable from the battery's + terminal; it would end up in 1 of the 2 erminals of the starter relay.  Beneath the rubber cap would be the main fuse.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
