OK thanks, ***** ***** had a few areas where the wire harness shorted, you need to remove the fuel tank and at the back where the fuel tank is, just under that where the harness comes up from under the seat look at the underside of the harness, that was one area.Then look over on the r/h side where the air cleaner is located, behind the air cleaner, look in that area,So if you install the 30 amp fuse and it doesn't blow until the ignition switch turns on that would tell me that likely you have a "brown" wire that is shorted.So another thing you can do is unplug every accessories (lights, regulator/rectifier, anything that has a plug connections, then start plugging then back in until the fuse blows, now if you have most everything unplugged and you are still blowing fuses, then look for that harness short.Let me know if you have any further questions.ThanksKenny
