check your cdi--look at the wireing---look for a short to ground.
Notoriuos to wear the insulation on the wire on the frame right at the cdi.
If not there --it is somewhere in that wire loom.
Check the whole thing.
my first thought was the CDI (FST)....i had heard this CDI having some issues........thanks i will look closer or just put the stocker back in.....the CDI is only 4 months old....got it straight from Mickey........
ive had an 04 V for about 8 months now....not a single issue.....today the bike just stoped...no power or lights....i remember reading about the fuse under the seat blowing and would leave you stranded.....well it did....i put a new fuse in it and after about 1 min it will just blow.....i put in a third fuse and the bike was just sitting (with out running) and the fuse just blew after about a min.......i just could not find any wire that was broken or rubbing...........any help would be most helpful.......thanks..........dennis
Trace the wires from the fuse as far as you can and look for worn insulation on the wires possibly grounding to the frame, or onto another wire. Some of the other wires are also ground wires. Hot-ground will blow a fuse everytime. The problem can also be intermintant if the grounding is soft (just touching).
ive traced all the wires and they all look very good..but i can only see the "jacket" that they r in.......i was hoping some simple "fix" was in order....nothing rubbing anywhere.....i just didnt want to split the jackets to expose the wires........
i thought the fst cdi was pretty reliable? wires on the frame check again.
