    Hi everyone

    I'm delighted to be able to join the buellxb.com family. If I may ask a tech question? I'm blowing fuses. The short is within the light, Ignition, and the Horn/Brake fuses. If all 3 fuses are good then the ignition fuse will blow. I can either have the Horn/brake and the ignition fuse in or the light and the ignition fuse in, but if all 3 are in the ignition will blow. Basically I'm riding either with out headlights or no brake lights/horn. Has anyone experienced this before? Please help

    Sounds like a short in the wiring somewhere. I bet that somewhere along the wires the vibrations have caused one of the wires to wear through and its touching metal or another wire somewhere. Have you traced the wire routes yet?

    I looked at the wires and they looked fine. I was hoping it was a relay or something.

    All of the wire...im not talking about just what is easily visible. Trace it back from the fuse/relay to the actual light and cluster itself.

    No,relay is fine look for chaffing or hidden short,follow the wires with your hands,and look harder and you will find it.
