# Where is the main fuse on a motorcycle?

## Where is the main fuse on a motorcycle?

Normally you would install the main fuse on the live side of the battery in-line with the wire which goes from the battery and up to the ammeter connections for distribution to the lights and other accessories.

## What does the main fuse do in a motorcycle?

A motorcycle fuse blows when the current draw on a circuit exceeds the amperage rating of the fuse. In order to protect the wiring in that circuit from melting, the fuse will blow so no permanent damage is done to your motorcycle wires or accessories.

## What happens if I put a 15 amp fuse in a 10 amp slot?

You can, it will may immediately blow, but it won’t hurt anything other than the fuse. What you don’t want to do is use a higher amp fuse or something like a jumper wire. That could damage the wiring and start a fire.

## Can I use a 30 amp fuse instead of 20?

Do not use a fuse with a lower rating– don’t put a 20 amp fues in a 30 amp circuit–because it probably will blow prematurely. Conversely replacing a 20-amp fuse with one rated at 30 amps is dangerous because it may not blow soon enough and damage an electrical component or start a wiring fire.

## How many watts can a 25 amp fuse handle?

Circuit Capacity Using this simple relationship principle, you can calculate the available wattage of any given circuit size: 15-amp 120-volt circuit: 15 amps x 120 volts = 1,800 watts. 20-amp 120-volt circuit: 20 amps x 120-volts = 2,400 watts. 25-amp 120-volt circuit: 25 amps x 120 volts = 3,000 watts.

## Can you put a 5 amp fuse in a 13amp plug?

The purpose of a fuse (or circuit breaker) is to protect the circuit from damage due to overheating. If your circuit is rated at 13 Amps or higher then you can replace the 5 amp fuse with a 13 amp fuse.

## Can I replace a 13A fuse with a 10A fuse?

If you replaced it with 13A fuse, it will allow current more than 10A, so it may possible that other components may get damage due excessive current flow than specified. If TV components can sustain up to 13 A current, you can replace it.

## Can you replace a 2 amp fuse with a 3 amp fuse?

3 Amp should be okay. The main purpose of the fuse is to prevent burning wires. Radio Shack has the fuse in a higher voltage rating, but it won’t cause a problem.

## Can I use a 3 amp fuse instead of a 5 amp fuse?

A 3A fuse was used for a reason. If so, yes, you can replace a 3A fuse with a 5A fuse. Never replace a blown fuse with a higher-amp fuse. Always replace the fuse with one with the specified amp rating.
