I'm hopeless with electrics but if the fuse is blowing then my _guess_ would be a burnt wire or connector or a live wire is earthing against the frame or engine.
You could try disconnecting evey connector, put a new fuse in and then reconnect things until it blows the fuse again. The fuel pump is probably the highest power draw followed by the headlights so try disconnecting those first. But hopefully somebody a bit more in touch with electricity can give you a better idea of where to start :)

The Regulator/Rectifier converts the AC output of the alternator into DC voltage and then regulates it down to what is required by the bike (around 13.5-15VDC) and dumps the excess as heat. The bike does not need the alternator or regulator for it to start or run so just disconnect them if you think they're causing the problem.

929joe, I'm having a very similar issue with my 2000 929 that I describe in a separate post ("929 went completely dead"). only difference seems to be my main 30amp fuse blows after running the engine for about 30 seconds and not immediately upon turning the ignition switch on. although it's not posted, can you tell me what you found to be the cause on your bike? much appreciated.
