Main Fuse

Last night I tried to start my 1981 CX500 and the fuse block next to the battery blew. I found a shorted wire to the head light and repaired it. Now can I just put a regular in line fuse in place of the fusable link that was there?

Thanks Ken

Hi Ken

Yes, I changed to using blade fuses ages ago

they're cheap, easy to find at any gas station etc and spares can be kept in your pocket

with out getting danaged.

Some folk use inline cartridge fuse holders, the choice is yours.

The only caveat, whatever method you choose is to

ensure you have good sound connections to avoid reliability issues
