I had a wierd thing happen yesterday, which ran over into today. Got on the trusty 1500 trike, went to the store, and when I came out, no reverse. Also, no air pump for the shocks/airbags. Started right up, though and got home fine. Tried reverse again, nothing. Checked the dog bone 55 amp fuse, and it was vaporized. Bought a couple spares, and checked everything for scuffed wires, breaks etc. Nothing found. Checked all the charging system and all is well. Do those fuses just go bad over time? Everything works perfectly since the new fuse.I would guess the one that was in there was 10 years old. Thanks, jimsjinx

I put in a connector on my Starter soleonod so If I blow a fuse, I can just discouple it and have it repaired in 1/4 of the time. You can also et an adaptor at Advance Auto Pars, and change the fusebon out to plug in fuses. i pln to do that to mine soon. I'm getting tired of dogbone fuses.
Good Luck,

Nightrider 1,
I have researched alternatives and have not found a good dog bone fuse alternative if one is running the high output alternator; 90 amps.

Might be something to look at. I was looking at circuit breaker until I was told they might be a little slow. I know you are the electrical guru GS.
