main fuse shorting out

hi guys, sorry to hijack this thread, but I'm having a similar issue with my 09 1700 nomad. on a trip to Canada over Labor Day, my main fuse blew one morning about 5min after the bike had been started and was running. we replaced the main fuse and the bike started up again and ran about 10 minutes before the main fuse blew again... all other fuses were ok...

after that, the problem progressed so that the main fuse now blows immediately upon the ignition switch being turned to the ON position... the bike doesn't get a chance to start at all...

we had been riding in some light rain the day before all this started, but experienced no problems while riding in the rain, it was the next morning that things went haywire... the bike has about 20,000 miles on it.

any suggestions on where to start?? thanks!!

Let's all try really hard not to say dumb stuff...

Nope; haven't had any time until now to work on it... but next weekend and thanksgiving weekend I'll be tearing it down... I've been riding my KLR instead... I do miss the 1700 some days though! ;o)
