In between your speedo and tach gages under the plastic. There should even be a diagram and a spare int there too, That is if the 86 is like my 85.

Nope, the 1986 is not like the 1983-1985 models. Sit on the bike, and turn the handlebars to the right. Now get off and look at the area under the speedometer, where the frame meets the forks. There's a plastic cover about 4 inches tall and an inch wide. That covers the fuses.

Place bike on center stand, turn handle bars to far right & you should see a black box on left hand side right below the handle bars. Believe one screw at top holds cover on.

Oh, don't worry! There's lots of people here with the 1983-1985 models. Almost everything between those three years is the same, except that most of the 1984/1985 models are 700s and not 750s.
