charging fuse question
Here's an odd question. I have a charging connector wired across the battery and it has 7.5A inline fuse. I leave it there with the wire tucked under the seat for the year, then when I put it in storage (like now) I pull the connector out and plug in the charger.
I was checking the bike today and noticed the charger flashing red meaning it's not charging. Discovered that the fuse was burnt. My question: What would cause that fuse to be burnt? Would normal starting put too much current across it? I'm wondering how long it has been burnt. Could it have been when I took it out back in the spring?
Just seemed a little odd. Curious if the group knows what would cause this.
