Take off the left side cover and check each fuse one by one. 9 times out of 10 you can visually see the blown fuse without testing it once pulled out. I don't have a manual handy now to pin point witch one exactly it is. If this a second time now, you have another issue then blowing fuses, you got a short somewhere, changing fuses is a temp fix.

That's the fun part.. The first thing you might want to try is putting in a lower amp fuse. If you have a 20A put a 10A in. If that holds up wiggle some wires around by hand.. start at each light. If you move a wire and hear the fuse snap you know you're in the right place. If you can't get the fuse to blow it becomes much more difficult to explain the how to's. BTW, if the fuse blows as soon as you put it in then bump it up a little,, (if the stock fuse is a 20 try a 10 if that you blows fast try a 15) Do not add anything to the fuse like tin, gum rapper etc.. or a larger fuse. Doing so can start a fire or at he very least melt some wiring.

the brown wire that runs the dash lights was chaffed under the rear of my tank, where the wire loom separates for a junction for the tank sending unit. check there first.

Are there any fuses on the bike or just in the junction box?
