I recently bought a 2001 TRX350FM. It would not start with the electric starter - it would pull-start and run fine. The solenoid was clicking. I replaced the battery and got a new solenoid. After putting the battery in - I noticed I had no "neutral light" - the 25 amp fuse on the right side of the fuse-box had blown. I replaced that - had the neutral light and the oil-temp light back. The solenoid just clicked. I pulled the pull start once and it fired. I noticed the neutral light was out again. I checked and the 25 amp fuse had blown again. After replacing the solenoid, I put the battery back in and the 25 amp fuse blew again - immediately. It continue to blow. Obviously I have a short. Every time I put a fuse in, it blows. My question...where/what is the most logical place and how to check to narrow it down. I've been tracing back individual wires - I see no breaks or disconnects. The ignition is off and the key is out.
