Well,
I won't know till monday, b/c torrential rain is expected friday - sunday, with a very high chance of flooding...
My heated grips work on a DPDT switch with a high/low setting (and off). I only use low b/c they are nice and toasty. also, typically they only run for 10 minutes, but I know if it has a short, it takes less than a secon for a fuse to blow.

Just blew another 10A fuse yesterday, just going to get gas and I noticed my signals not working.

Was making a joke but I guess you're pissed and not in the mood for humor. Sorry.

Still sounds like a short to ground.

Check your electrical lines. It sounds like its happening when the bike is moving. With that said, If you have an exposed wire and it taps the frame or another price of the bike that is metal or a conductor, it will pop your fuse... I'd check the lines for the turn signals, the grips, and whatever else you now have wired in. Look for any cuts or breaks in the wire or more importantly, the wire sheath.

I figured it out, it's the heated grips. it blows the fuse instantly if I flick it to 'high'. I just changed out my throttle tube, and replaced my heated grip on that side, b/c I effed up the one previous, getting of the D3 grips... I was testing out my wiring job. blew the fuse yesterday, then another today, right after I hopped onto my bike for my morning commute.
