Default fuse questions

my turn signals, brake light, nueutral light, and horn are not working i am assuming this is a fuse issue because they all quit at once. my question is where are the fuses at, under the tank? does it use fusable links and if it does use a fuse are they regular automotive fuses. thanks for the help, oh yeah the bike is a 96 1100 ace

Default Re: fuse questions

I am unsure of the 1100 ace but most every bike I have done electrical work on has the fuse box under the seat. This picture is taken from a 2005 Aero service manual. I think this is your best bet.

If you have the room, use a circuit breaker with the same amp rating.

it looks like the fuse box may be accessible from a side cover. on my 02 Sabre, the fuse box is behind the left side cover by the battery.

On the ACE, the fuse box is on the left hand side of the bike.

If you look at the side cover that has the battery behind it, move
back towards the backend of the bike.
There is a little black plastic cover.
It has a screw in the upper left corner and middle right side.
Remove that cover and the fuses are under it.

Located by the passenger peg on my VT1100 Spirit I have to put the peg down to unscrew it.

Yep, that's it.

If you have floorboards, I've generally had to completely remove the
floorboards to get the screwdriver in there.
