The recommended fuse for my bike's accessory circuit is 7.5 amps. Is the wiring robust enough to use a 10 amp fuse or larger?
I set out for Bike Week from my home in northeast Arkansas in 34 degree weather last week, running a Garmin Zumo 550 with XM radio along with my Gerbings jacket liner and heated gloves and a new Gerbings controller. About a mile from home, I dialed up the heat and it blew the fuse. Fortunately, I had a spare 7.5 amp fuse at home, so I turned around, replaced the fuse, dumped the jacket liner and controller (keeping the gloves because they're the heaviest I own) and layered up against the cold.
The ride to and from Daytona was miserably cold, despite my bulky clothing and I really missed the comfort of electric heat.
If I can use a heavier load fuse without frying the wires or setting fire to my bike, I sure would like to know.
