I read all the time about the dog bone fuse giving people trouble so I wanted to check it and replace with an inline fuse. I think the previous owner removed it.
My question should the dog bone be where the white wire is?
Thanks

Yes. The white wire has replaced the dogbone fuse.

The PO must have liked living dangerously

Thanks for the quick reply I couldn't find a picture of one but I was pretty sure that's where it should be. You just have to love those previous owners :X :headbanger: I thought I already found all his past fixes.
So I'm off to Radio Shack.:walker::walker:

I guess it could be a fusible link, looks like standard wire with crimp on ends. I'm not going to take the chance and I would like standard fuses easier to find and replace if I get stuck. :)

From the picture I would say that you do not have a main fuse,it has been jumped with a piece of wire ,akin to putting a penny in the fuse box in your house......... Dangerous.....You should eliminate it asap. Do a search of "dog bone fuses" and you will see exactly how to make the repair utilizinga modern push in plastic 30 amp fuse....It is an easy fix.....GM

I have a similar set up on my GL1100 that I want to replace.

I have seen in some of the threads that there is an adapter that replaces the dog bone with a blade fuse socket. I haven't seen one yet nor do I know exactly where they carry them but I am thinking probably an auto parts store. If anyone knows, please let both of us know.

Put in what klwatts says and do it quick.

You can burn out your wiring harness and cause a fire if you do not have it FUSED.

Well I did replace it and all is right with the world again.:action: I picked the fuse holder up at Radio Shack 30 amp waterproof 10gauge wire for automotive use and some 30 amp fuses all for around $5.00.
They do have a good assortment of switches, connectors, and fuses it might be worth a look when you need one.:)
