Headlight problem

I was riding my Vulcan today when I noticed that the headlight wasn't turned on. Took a look at the blade fuse and it was blown. Tried two other 10 amp fuses and both blew immediately when I fired up the bike. I'm guessing there's a short somewhere. Has anyone had the same experience with a VN2000?

it rings a few bells.

Try the search bar, might come up with something. (not being sarcastic, I really don't know)

Do you have the nacelle version? If so, it's not hard to remove, and then check the wires behind it for a short.

Yes, I'm a Chrome Whore.

My 2000 does have the nacelle headlight. Turns out the H7 bulb was the issue. It had burnt out and was causing a short. Put in a new bulb and all is well again .
