13 SG. ..I had a problem with my 15 amp accessory fuse blowing...turns out the harness in the fairing was rubbing the edge of the radio and was grounding..the tech said it was a very common problem..just throwing it out there incase any of you guys are having an issue with it...this is the fuse that feeds turn signals, brakes, etc. ..

Yep, old ongoing problem. The harness can rub thru on the inner fairing support bracket and also on the radio heat sink among other places.

My buddy's '07 radio was blowing fuses. Wire was rubbing on the radio heat sink. I've adjusted my harness, and tie wrapped a piece of inner tube around the wires.

I found the dead short by mistake ! I just happened to be in the fairing installing the HDBT, and while I was tidying up all the wires again, SPARK ! The same location as everyone else ! Tach wire harness rubbing on the radio bracket..:frown Just glad I found it in the garage and not on the road.
