10 A ign fuse keeps blown out when i turn the key

Been having some trouble the last few days and yesterday it wouldn't start and all i could hear was buzzing so tried a boost and it ran fine and a few hrs later tird it again and it wouldn't go on a boost. Now im seeing that when i turn the key the ign fuse is burnning out? Bad wire of somebody said the PGM FI unit?? Is that the computer? The - symbol is also flashing but it doesn't stop. HELP!!!

if your blowing fuses ?..then this means you have a short somewhere ?...open circuit to ground will blow a fuse all day long. from your battery, trace the hot lead to your ignition..look for any bare wires touching the frame or motor ?. i don't see how a bad pgm ( c.d.i. ) can blow a fuse ?. you have a short somewhere ?.

When the PGM-FI unit goes bad it can blow the 10A ign fuse, don't know why or how cause they're sealed and for added insurance, recommend replacing the regulator as well, but as shadetree mentions above check for corroded grounds or open wires first, before blowing 200 bucks for new parts.

bad CDI?

Been trying to figure out what's blowing my 10 amp ignition fuse. I put it in and blows when i turn the key. Could smell some burning and buzzing. My cdi/ecu/computer unit was hot.Seems to be diff names for it. Could that be fried or could it be a bad wire im not seeing. Went through a few wires and cant see anything. Started on a boost yesterday but wont do that anymore. The - symbol keeps flashing and doesnt stop. Im not sure what else to do. I had my fuel pump of a few days ago changing the filter. DOnt think that would have done anything

try this....look up your fuse..and see what that 10 amp fuse is inline with ?..your fuel pump ?..fan ?..see where it goes ?..where ever that fuse is in line ?..more than likely..what ever is in line with that ?..is what your problem is ?..look at your wiring diagram..and see what all is in that circuit ?. when you see something that is hooked to that fuse..unplug it..put another fuse in..turn the key on..if the fuse does not blow ?..then you found out what is blowing the fuse..orrrrrrrr..you can just unplug everything..and start pluging one thing back in at a time..when the fuse blows..then you will know what is making it blow ?.

also..as i said before....somewhereeeeeee in the wire harness..is a bare wire..touching the frame..or motor ?..this is the only thing i know that will blow a fuse..i have never heard of a bad c.d.i. or ecm blowing a fuse..only thing that will blow a fuse is an open circuit..which means...you got a hot wire touching ground.

I was using a bare wire to replace the fuse instead of blowing them all and the wire dims my lights and you can tell its drawing a lot of power. A few times it turned over but with no fuel pump coming on. The harness from the ignition to the fuse pannel is black taped from the last person

you just need to trace from your battery..all the way through your wire harness..up to your ignition switch..look at every inch..start at the battery..and work your way to the front of the bike, if someone has taped over the harness ?..you can tell by the color of the tape..and if they did ??..then they had the same problem your having !.
