Mine said 2 amp rated on the provided warning sticker but it had a 7.5 amp fuse in the fuse holder on the provided harness. I'm not about to test that out because if the fuse pops I'll have to take to whole bike apart again to access the fuse location. Stupid design on the 16-17 model bikes IMO.
Interesting Roy. Thanks for this info. So is the fuse on the recent bikes more accessible too?
