Blown head light fuse
Readers and riders,
I have a problem that keeps me stopped. My headlight fuse keeps blowing and I don't know why.
I have done the obvious, checked wires, replaced bulb, checked wires, bought new fuses and put them in, and checked wires.
The radiator fan switch and thermostat switch have both been replaced. Light worked for a few days after that, and I thought that was it. (How those two items work with the headlight baffles me) Went to ride it today, and no headlight...no low beam, no high beam. :-( Help?
Please reply if you have had this issue with your 1600 Vulcan and fixed it, or if you have fixed this problem as a bike mechanic. What I don't need is Billy from Timbuktu with a mudbike from Egypt to tell me what he did to a friends bike in 1970, again. (His name is not Billy, and he's not from Timbuktu, but it was a very frustrating waste of time)
Please understand I value your input, but this issue is helping me decide to keep or sell the bike. My wife loves it and loves riding with me, so we want to keep it. However, I'm tired of taking the tank off every week to trace wires and find nothing, then replace the fuse again, only to have it pop in a couple of days.
Thank you in advance for your help.
