Main 30 amp fuse blows even with ignition off
I love this bike but constant electrical issues plague me, I hope you lot can help me sort them out, it can't just be the British weather.... can it?
Initially, while touring in France the pins on the original regulator rectifier broke, replaced with a pattern one, then the alternator burnt out, replaced this, again with a pattern one. System checked charging only at 13v. Battery kept dying, especially when riding with the lights on. Then the 30amp fuse blew. Replaced this and had no problems for two days then blew again. Replaced it to get home, charged battery, took for test drive, got 12 miles before bike died, but fuse did not blow. Charged battery got 3 more miles, fuse blew. Now, even with ignition off and key out, the fuse blows as soon as you offer it to the junction box... any ideas would be gratefully recieved. As I said, I absolutely love this bike but the unreliability is making it a chore to own. Forever hopeful of finding the source of the problem. thanks, Big General.
