    Talking Newbee: V Star 1100 keeps blowin fuses

    Newbee here:

    My V-Star 1100 keeps blowing the light fuse and the odometer fuse. I don't know what else. I put a new one in, start it up and they blow again. Does anyone have a solution?

    what year is it?
    have you recently washed the bike? if so check your wiring entering the headlight bucket for chafed wires this is usually the culprit if the bike has bar risers installed.

    2007. No riser installed. Yes, I have recently washed it, but used very little water from the hose, mostly a spray wash. I guess that can cause the speedometer and headlight fuses to continuously blow! WOW. I'll take a look. Thanks for your help.

    Just checked headlight bucket, no frays visible. In fact, the round piece that houses the wires seemed to run pretty far into the housing unit and in tack as far as visible.

    one other thing to check would be the actual headlight plug or the speedo plug make sure that the wires are not touching inside the connector, my 07 roadliner had an issue one timr with the female ( brass ends of the wires ) not locken into the plastic connector on the stator and this caused the bike to run off just the battery until it died going down the highway at 70 mph. it didn't short out but could have if the wires touched each other. the other thing to do is take a volt/ ohm meter and attach negative lead to frame with the headlamp unpluged on the power leads check for continuity to ground that will tell you which wire is grounded. But remember that you should have at least two wires grounded one in each of the connectors.let me know if this helps.
