Regulator causing main fuse to blow on cbr900rr
After filling up with fuel at the local petrol station, to heavy frustration, the bike wouldn't start. No lights come on at all, no oil light, no neutral light, nothing. I checked the small fusebox first, nothing wrong, then the main fuse (30A) and saw it blew, but as soon as I put a spare one in, it blows immediately even with the ignition off.
After doing alot of tests i found that it is the Regulator that's blowing it (main fuse). So I unplugged the regulater and all is fine, well except the battery is not charging. The regulator was the last thing I thought would blow as I just replaced it with a new one 6 months ago.
Can anyone tell me why this is happening ? is there maybe another electrical part that I should replace (as well as regulator, off course) to prevent this from happening again ?
I have a cbr900rrx (1999 model).
I couldn't find any post about this, if there is one, please point me to it.
Thanks in advance..
