Fuse blown in 12V accessory socket

Hi everyone

I had the Honda 12V accessory socket fitted from new and I have managed to blow the fuse (stupidly I attempted to use an electric tyre pump)

According to the fitting instructions there is an inline fuse, however I am unsure of the location

Iím hoping replacement of the fuse wonít involve stripping down the front end!

Any advice would be appreciated

Many thanks in advance

Unfortunately it is a complete strip down of thr front end. I raised this as a potential issue with my dealer pre purchase and was told it would be covered by the warranty. There is a good YouTube clip of how to strip and replace the front end.

Thanks very much for confirming, I think I'd rather attempt it myself than let the dealer loose on it again so will check out the video for sure!

Unless it was added by the installer, there is no inline fuse in the OEM 12v accessory outlet wiring kit. The front accessory plug is fused from the 10a OP fuse under the seat.

That is wrong information. I just ordered and installed the Honda 12v accessory plug/wiring kit and there is indeed an inline fuse (7.5 amps, i believe). Unfortunately, it does require removing the whole front fairing.
First time doing this might seem like a chore, but after you've done it once or twice it really isn't too bad. I can probably do it in under 15 minutes.

Really? Then there must be two kits. Please tell me where to find the inline fuse in this harness.

Gladly. Page 4, #17: "fuse holder". It looks like another connector but it's a fuse holder with a fuse in it.

Wow. Honda has done some dumb things but this is a corker. Hiding a fuse under the fairing is criminal. If I passed on the kit and installed a generic socket, fused from the main fuse block. Why not just jump that inline fuse and put a 7.5a. in the OP slot?

Good point, but my best guess would be that maybe there are other, more important items on that same circuit that you couldn't (or wouldn't) operate the bike without functioning or risk damaging.
Whereas, you could probably live (for a while at least) without your accessory outlet.
