Dave -

Mike Nixon hosts an excellent website that will surely help you figure out what is wrong with your bike. The main site is www.motorcycleproject.com , and the link below takes you directly to the charging system section:

Thanks for the link. I disconnected the regulator and now the fuse doesn't blow. Ordered a new reg. Hopefully that will fix it. No other fuses are blown. I did find a grounded wire on the left rear turn signal but not sure this would make the regulator fail.

Quick up date. Have put a couple hundred miles on the bike sice replacing the voltage regulator/rectifier. No more blown fuses and charging system is working. Thanks for the tips!
