what were you doing when this started happening?

tell me everything you can.


Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I bought this bike 3 months ago. This same fuse blew and took it back to harley. There was a wire to two lights in back of engine with an exposed wire. The tech eliminated these lights and put in a fuse and was ok until last week when fuse blew again. Now the fuse will blow when turning on ignition.
