Angry Confused

1997GW1500SE. Motor Trike. Elec problem? Bike will start, headlights, tail lights work, turn signals, hazard lights, R comes on but when I put the reverse lever on I blow a 15A fuse in the fuse box . I have tried to check every connection and looked for shorts etc. I do have a light bar and led trunk lights that were on the bike when I bought it. Totally blown mind!

Which fuse is blowing? By number, top to bottom. There are more than 1 15 amp fuse in the box.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

I see no way putting it in reverse could cause that fuse to blow.

With a trike conversion who knows what was done?
Took me many trips to forums before I found my rear Master cyl. reservoir's hiding spot.

By chance did someone add a set of back up lights to the trike? I know it sounds odd but people have done it.

I like that. Maybe I'll rig one, for "Sh*** & Grins* with the group? Wire it through a relay.
The few times I've used reverse on ours, if "Wife Unit" was on board, a "Beep Beep" could be heard.
