Quick troubleshooting question:
At the end of a ride the other day, I noticed my headlight switch getting a bit weird (flickery). The next day when I went to start it, the fuse would blow every time I turned the engine over (on the pedal, my electric start doesn't currently work). Also, the headlight indicator never came on. I've opened up the switches and the head shell but haven't seen anything amiss. Any ideas?

well sounds like you have a wondefull wiring bug

first thing i would double check would be that your ground wire from the battery is tight (if it is loose you can draw too much current and blow the fuse)
if it is good and tight now you have to find where you have a wire grounding out

good luck with your trouble shooting

Which fuse are you blowing? Under the horncast or at the battery?

Chances are you are pinching your wiring loom under your headset cover on the shifter side. A power wire is grounding out.
