Yeah I kinda melted the diode in the fuse box up on the handle bars. Does any one know were I can find another one and if there is a certain size diode?

I would play safe and go for the ones Shep listed on Ebay. The 1N4004 are silicon rectifiers good for 1 AMP. I would not recommend just plopping an unknown diode in (Germanium, signal diodes, zeners and Bidirectional zeners all look the same, and wont work).



When in doubt, the 1N4001-1N4008 series are the best bet.

3 Amp would be better, any Radio Shack.
