So any ideas why my bike would be blowing the 10amp ignition fuse as soon as I turn the key to run? All other systems work all lights work and no visible issues with the wiring. Any ideas would be great.

It’s a common connector for most of those fuses, but the three main ones feeding off the ignition fuse (black wire) is the fuel pump relay, the regulator/rectifier, and the starter & kill switch. Unplug them, then plug them back in one at a time until it blows that fuse. Then check those connections and trace along that wire for shorts.

Find the one that is blowing and look for added wiring to that circuit. May be an accessory added and shorted wiring.

Thanks for the info!

The only thing add are 2 extra brake lights and all seem good with them. I'll keep looking. Thanks for the info!
