Thumbs up why does my 30 amp fuse keep blowing

hi guys, i have had my raptor about a week now, and since i bought it i have had the same problem, everytime i start the quad the 30 amp fuse keeps blowing, i have put in about 10 new fuses now, i was told it was because i was keeping my finger on the electric start to long, but i dont do tht no more and it still keeps on blowing fuses, i phoned up the person i bought it from and he reckons it might be the relay switch on it, so he has said he will buy me a new one, but was just wondering if anyone has had this problem and if so what did you do to resolve this issue any help is appreciated, thanks damian

no mine runs good,maybe its that black little box beside the antifreeze tank in the back the rectifier it controls how much amps/volts gos to the bike and back into the battery to charge it i think.if im correct its the box.

I would check for a short in the wiring harness, anything associated with turning on the bike, not necessarily the relay, but wiring in general to the lights, start button, ETC.

nice one lads much appreciated, i went on i today and it blew about 6 fuses so there is something wrong dont really know to much about all that but i will have a look in the morning, the guy i bought it off said that it only done it on him once, just abit weird that since i bought it it has done this but he didnt mention nothing about it, just hope it is nothing serious and just as you say a short somewhere, well i will have a go and if i cant fix it i will let you know what happens, and if i do sort it i will post a thread on this problem and how to resolve this issue, thanks damian

yes he also said that the indicators and lights worked but the indicators dont seem to be working neither now, so somwhere there is a wire shortage or something going wrong might take it to my local bike centre and let them have a look.
