    10Amp service fuse woes continue

    After checking the wiring diagram adn finding all OK except drop/tilt sensor (cnt find it on bike!) i put the 1130 back together again after its trip home form Scotlanf in the back og exjapSteve's van.

    Took it out for a run to Hawes all OK but the 10A fuse blew again on my way to Settle - total trip 50miles. Fuse blew over a crest/jump so no indicators no brakes..

    Fitted a new fuse and was on my way 5-10min later and made it 100yds before it blew again .... bugger.

    Fitted another fuse and this one held for another 35 miles sill I got home using front and rear brakes and indicators etc....

    So im totaly confused as to whats causing this 10A service fuse to blow.

    Me thinks Ill have to take it to Russ ... but dont know hoew he can fix it when all is fine for 50 miles?

    it's gotta be a loose bare connection earthing out after time/vibration
    (reminder to order 10mm2 cable and 100A fuses )
    regards, Bob

    I thought you would have it sorted ny now Nige?
    Bob's therory sounds most likely given the random mileage between fuse replacements?
    The biggest job is finding the damaged wire

    Good luck fella

    potentially huge job
    However I'd still trace all the cables that were altered when you swapped the fairings. Def a good start.
    Due to the intermittent nature, a multimeter probably won't help
    A physical wire by wire check may well be the only option, possibly such a long job best done by yourself, rather than pay someone else by the hour ??

    I think a multimeter will help,if the fuse that blows is removed the meter could be connected to earth and to the circuit wire,then wiggling of the cable/loom may give a clue to where the fault is by showing continuity to earth.

    Would be good to know where that tilt switch has got to and what the wiring looks like where it should be.
