blowing fuses! help!
« on: October 08, 2018, 04:17:48 PM »

So I'm riding yesterday and I blew the fuse that's under the passenger seat. luckily the little fuse box carried a spare. so I put the spare in. this morning I'm on my way to work... and it blows again! luckily I had another spare of my own... but now I'm all out. What could be possibly blowing those fuses? the only recent things done, were that I installed LED headlight bulbs 2 days ago. aside from that, I replaced a bad speed sensor by front wheel? could the LED's be causing this? Are there any other fuses on the bike that may have blown causing this one to blow? Side note: when the first fuse blew yesterday, the speed sensor blew to, so now that's not working(again). thanks in advance!

More info would be helpful.
Model of bike and year ?
Which fuse and what size is blowing (there should be more than one fuse in the box) ?
What exactly were the LED headlights you fitted ?
What are you like at electrical installation  ;)

I'd suggest that it is too co-incidental to not be related to the work you did. I'd say it's most likely to be related to the LEDs than the speed sensor.

Is there a short somewhere perhaps? Check for melted or exposed wiring.

I was more diplomatic which is not normally like me  ;D  when I asked .....
