PostSubject: Keep Blowing Fuses   Sat Jun 14, 2014 11:13 am

I have had my 04 Silverwing for about 3 weeks now and I have blown the 10 amp fuse 2 times now. It is the fuse that effects the tach,speedometer,and the fuel gauge/temp gauges. I am told it is probably a short somewhere. I know in a car when someone says a short everyone cringes as it's next to impossible to find. My buddy is gonna try and find it for me before taking it to a shop and spending a lot of $$$$$.I looked at the online manual for my SW but I see nothing on how to take the front off of it to get to the wiring he would need to look at. Is there a tutorial on this or a section of this manual that tells you how to remove the front ferring to get to the wiring? Any other advise where to look? Thanks.

Unless you understand Italian, the audio would be useless to you anyways.

This is why it would be nice for people to come back and tell us what their problem turned out to be, and how they fixed it.
It is also why sometimes people are less than welcoming when a new member asks for help on their first post.
Doct1369 I wish I could tell you why you are blowing fuses. All I can suggest is try following the the wire that the fuse is blowing on to see if you can find a short.

Yes it can be difficult.I do not think the S/W is notorious for blowing a particular fuse.You never know what you are going to find when buying a use scooter(or car)but most of the time it is relative to some other repair.Can you tell if some one has worked in a particular area or removed a item they may have installed.The front tree(the part under the handle bars)is a area that a lot of wiring is fastened and rotates when steering.You will probably find a area where the wiring insulation has been scrubbed off. You probably will need two people to remove the front faring the first time.Just take your time and try not to complicate matters. Howard

no repair have been made to the scooter and no items have been added it just started doing this out of the blue. i went for a ride and came home then went back out for a ride and the scooter would not turn over and then when it did the fuse was dead so i replaced it and went for the ride everything was fine then did the same thing the next day. i replaced the fuse and started the scooter up and then fuse went before i made it back onto the road.

sorry it's been so long but i forgot to post what i found when i had this happen to me. i found a wire that was rubbing against the "THREAD, STEERING HEAD TOP" part number 53220-422-000 causing the wire to short out. i taped up the sharp edge with several layers of electrical tape and it fixed the fuse problem. the part is not very sharp but after 14 years of the wires rubbing there it cut into the wires insulation causing the wire to ground out. this may not happen to you but if you start blowing the 10 amp fuse for the dash check the wires near this part.

i hope this help you guys and save you a lot of time Smile

Glad you found it and more so that you let the forum know how you corrected it.

I was going to recommend you seek out some anger management therapy if you kept blowing your fuse.

:lol!:

I recently had all the rear plastics off to fit s/h engine and noticed that the wiring loom that runs down the left side just in front of the battery box had rubbed through on the frame it was not causing any problems but in my opinion was not fitted in the right place causing it to rub against the frame in that area soon sorted it out though
