A lot of folks have by-passed the OEM fuse assembly and put a 30a marine quality fuseholder in. Just put a couple of ring terminals on the ends of the fuse holder and screw them into the place where the OEM fuse went.

$2.69 at Radio Shack gets you one of these:



Now you can just put a regular automotive 30 amp blade fuse in there, and if it blows, a replacement can be had at most any gas station or auto parts store.

Give up the Bandit and try here.

I have never had to change my main fuse, so I am not as paranoid of it. I just keep a spare...somewhere...it's been so long I can't remember where...but I know I have one.

Why ain't we ridin'?

That's how the PO of my bike wired it, very simple to do and saves a lot of headaches. One of these days I need to take a pic of it and post it.

I rode a GL1000 Gold Wing for 14 years and never had a problem with the OEM main fuse..........!!

Unless one is careless with electrical work, those OEM fuses will last a long time without problems.
