Question about 2006 Yamaha V Star Classic
I had just replaced the battery for this season with a new one. Everything worked fine at the end of last season. I was checking over the bike and noticed the neutral light was not on, checked the turn signals and they were not working the horn also is not working. One question is does this fuse control all listed defects and then why would the fuses keep blowing?? I need help soon trying to sell the bike and don't want to put these issues to the new owner. Thanks
Hi, Mike_meyers69 before diagnosing your blown fuse issue you are going to need a wiring from your service manual a test light, an ohmmeter and plenty of extra fuses. If you turn on your ignition switch and immediately blow a fuse you have a hard/dead short and is usually easy to find. With a test light connected to the hot side of the blown fuse holder start stabbing the wire/s that leads away from the fuse holder and towards the ignition switch, you test light will illuminate validating the short. When the test light fails to illuminate you have passed the short and need to back up until the test light illuminates, then look in the immediate area for the short.
If you driving down the road for 30 minutes or 15 miles and blow a fuse you have soft/flying short and may take some time and patience to find.
If the main fuse/circuit breaker constantly blows/trips while riding you probably have a faulty battery terminal connection. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary. Any other fuses that constantly keep blowing while riding are usually caused by a loose or corroded ground wire in the circuit, which means you have to check, inspect, test each and everyone with and ohm meter set on a low ohm scale 100 ohms or less . Simply touch one lead to the ground source and the other lead to the battery negative terminal, a reading of zero indicates a clean solid ground. Any number reading or infinity indicates a poor ground and needs to be repaired. Poor or weak grounds require excessive additional amperage to complete the circuit which in turn blows the small amperage fuse.

Good link here:
Lights flickering at times and/or battery gets hot to the touch
When the regulator dies, it allows as much as 19 volts to appear across the battery. This is not good. It will cook the battery and the battery could even explode. Fuse can not stand up to this!

my friend you have a short in your wiring harness. The best way to do a mini check is take your fairings off and start jiggling wires. Usually, if there is a short the lights and/or blinkers will blink.....otherwise your bulbs could be blown. If the harness is shorted go to your dealer or someone capable of fixing the problem( you probably can do it) hope this helps you...good luck!!

hello friend, it sounds like you have a direct short in your wiring. A hot touching ground somewhere as youve probably already figured. My suggestion is to get yourself a test light and although its time consuming, run down every wire in your harness starting with the lighting and horn wires. You have an older bike so you should probably remove all the bulbs one at a time and inspect the socketts for any rust or corrosion that could be causing a direct short. Also replace any wires that have become cracked and brittle. Some wires may look as though they are not exposed to shorting up against something but while in travel a mere bump in the road could cause a instant touch and short out your fuse. good luck.
