"blowing fuse"


  

          

Hello
My 1973 commando keeps blowing it's fuse. Starts and runs. In stop and go traffic 15 +/-miles it blows. On the freeway more miles until it blows 50 +/- miles. I just installed a H4 headlight and a LED tailight. I have checked wiring for chafe and rechecked installation. I'm sooo confused.
Thanks for any help.
Mike

Are you running a 15amp fuse? The bike should never draw more than that.

I had a the same problem, it was good for a week or so then I was blowing fuses sometimes 4 a day. I checked the wiring and found some possible problems but, after checking my head light wiring internals. There was a worn wire just from constant rubbing and vibrations. A little electrical tape fixed the problem ever since.
