No power, blowing 30A fuse repeatedly
So my bike broke down after the first hour of a road trip to NC. Luckily I found a place to store it until later, but I want to be proactive getting some repair advice. I'm going to tackle it when I get home.
- 2007 dl1000
- Lost all electrical power after shutting off at rest stop. No lights, no nothing.
- Rolled bike to auto shop next door, they help me diagnose
- Battery checked out with good voltage
- Pulled the small fuses, all we're good
- Large 30A fuse was blown. Replaced with spare, it immediately blew when I reconnected the battery.
- Wrapped the exposed terminals near the 30A fuse in case they had shorted on the frame, hooked up the battery first, blew another fuse after turning on the kill switch
Electrical work is like heiroglyphics to me. I am completely unfamiliar with what the components are called. However, I guess now's the time to learn.
- What would be the most likely candidate? Or easy thing to check first?
- Shop guy said the 30A fuse blowing but not the smaller ones point to something like the stator or something larger. Sound right?
- Can anyone point me to a useful thread or YouTube video that walks me through troubleshooting or how to look for shorts? Or maybe a reference to what certain voltages should be across certain elements?
- Is this a "take it to the shop" problem?
I think people have referenced a stator recall? I don't know if I've had it done or even if it includes my year.
