Hi!

Today I installed more LED´s on my bike.
I got +12V from the screw A in the fuse box (see the attached picture).
But this evening when I went out for a ride the lights died and after checking there is no power from the screw A.
Anyone got any idea what went wrong and how to fix it?

Best Regards,
/Thomas

Replace the 5 Amp fuse you blew and reduce the load below 5 Amps.

Which fuse is it for screw A?
I checked them all and I could not find any broken. Perhaps I was to fast checking?

Fuse # 10. I would have found it faster if I knew what year model yours is but I figured it out. You must have a lot of LEDs or a short in your wiring to blow the fuse.

Thanks!
I will check it tomorrow more closely!
Perhaps, I will install a relay for this.
Just for information, on the trailer behind the bike I have approx 500 LED´s!
I haven´t checked how many there are on the bike yet.

Best Regards,

No, the power for 500 LED´s are from the ordinary power to the rear light of the bike.
I assume the LED´s won´t use too much power.
I have a voltmeter installed just to be able to monitor but everything seems ok after a few weeks of test driving.
Pictures will be posted. Be patient.

Best Regards,
