Default blown fuse

so today cruising down the freeway, i blew the fuse that powers the tach, oil light, nuetral light, turn signals, and the brake light! that definitely scared me now that i can't tell people i'm slowing down. you do everything you can to make yourself more visible and then suddenly it fails. luckily there was an autopart store nearby and i now have plenty of spares under my seat.

Yep. Been there done that. Lucky for me I was out riding in a group. That is a something that I check now from time to time.

this is a great post. a good reminder to keep spares with you. a spare tailight bulb is a good idea also.

Now comes the real question:

What in your wiring or draw caused it to blow in the first place?

Fuses are there to protect other systems. When a fuse goes, it isn't because the fuse is bad, it's because something else is bad. Time for you to go find that something (usually it's a bit of wire with the insulation worn away tapping against a ground path).

Cheers,

Good post and a good reminder man. That's something I need to remember as well to put back in under my seat when I de winterize later this month.
